Great for the beginner.
This is a very easy to understand book with descriptions and pictures a-plenty. For the novice, it's the perfect book to answer all those questions of what does MS63 or AU50 means. Pictures of coins that are rare and coins that are common place, help the collector to know what to start working towards.
Red Book by Yeoman
The red Book in the format is the best of both worlds....The protection of a hard cover with the easy touse spiral binding. When you use a book as much as I do this oe, I would destroy the binding in short order. All my future copies will be in this format.
