: STS-V Factory Service Manual - which to buy... Book or CD?

Hey fellas...

Just wondering if one has an advantage over the other. I have always used book editions of FSM's but as I get older, money becomes a little more important to me. So is the CD a comparable alternative? Anyone have experience with the CD version?

I recently purchased both for my ex-CTS-V. The problem I have had with the CD is that it is NOT just plug and play. It uses GM's proprietary technician system and I find it rather cumbersome and frustrating.
If I had to do it again, I would definitely opt for the paper version.
Just my 2 cents.
