Hi! If you want to buy the 2017 Red Book Deluxe. The reason I suggest this after I bought the 2016 deluxe I could not believe the price changes! There were hundreds of them! I was shocked! It's worth the money. It has a ton of information the small book has. Look into it I think you will be surprised. Mike
