Note that in the new PDF version of the book both official text and all editorial content such as sidenotes are fully searchable and can be loaded onto a laptop computer.

Below is a sample of the Readable Regs. This element of the book translates the official text into intuitive language. For example, compare the text below to Treas.Reg.Sec. 1.704-3(e)(3)(i). Note the clearer writing style and succinct explanation of cross-references, all of which speed the reader through the provision in one pass, without flipping pages or clicking links. Note also the large type, even in footnotes.

The following sample page from the Readable Regs summarizes an example in the Regulations. Rather than repeat a detailed hypothetical fact pattern, Readable Press summarizes the principal points illustrated by the example. The summary focuses on the "moral of the story." The practitioner can then decide whether the example is pertinent to his or her issue. If so, he or she can read the entire example, along with explanatory side notes, in the Verbatim Regs Plus on the facing page.

Below is a sample Summary of Post-1999 Major Regulatory Activity. This table provides summaries of major changes and proposed changes to regulations under a given Code section over a ten year period. The "RP Change Reference" is a cross-reference that ties an entry in the Summary to the corresponding entry on the Table of Post-1999 Regulatory History (TRH), and to the Readable Regs for a Proposed Regulation. In the TRH the reader can find citations and effective dates, among other information. Similar tables and summaries are provided for the post-1999 legislative history of each applicable Code section.
