We're an easy touch, us lot. I thought I would get in on the act but with other trades in mind. My self-published tome, "How to Lay Bicks", pitched at bricklayers, sold only one copy to a short-sighted poultry farmer named Cockburn.

Yes thanks, there is a guide to consumer units in the listings. I have just invested in the 18th edition and On Site Guide so additional expense is not welcome at this stage. Just where will it all end? Books, guides, Standards, rules, regs., requirements. I think I will become a gardener.

The introduction of the 18th has probably killed all training courses and sales of books not directly related to the 18th.

There is also a printer somewhere in the world already in production of the counterfeit books, they may have been more gainfully employed printing the IET guide to consumer units under contract.

If you cast an eye over a few of the IET annual reports you will see comments like sales of BS7671 Electrical Regulations have been disappointing, a reference presumably its most important product from a financial point of view.

B.S. 7671 should come with a health warning such as "May cause a headache at least, or high blood pressure or heart attack at worst" especially if reading, trying to understand and apply, Chapter 44, especially Annex A443. Just how many sparks will ever need this or use this info?

Well, then they should charge less, or bugger about with it less. I might then shell out for my own copy instead of looking at works. I'd be interested/ amused to see how the costs are counted to decide the pricing. At the time of change-over the IEE produced regs at about half the price of the BSI , and 2 decades before that, the regs compared in price to buying an ordnance survey map. Not any more.
And lots of far more complex standards than British standards are actually free at point of use, as the national bodies and the companies that will benefit from the cooperation fund the contributors and the meetings. the ones for modern mobile phones for example I for example was doing this for a while about a decade ago.

Yep, It's in my digital ES+ package too.
Mind, VitalSource had it's issues early on, I think ES+ has got a lot better, there is actually an offline system now, and it does seem to work a lot better than it did originally.
Not that I'm at all biased...
