Eddie, with eBooks, you can read them on the computer but you can 
also print them, and even bind, individually or together, if willing 
to spend extra money. Up to you. Utter flexibility.

The problem with printed manuals is that they are always behind as 
they need a few months lead time for production and require more 
manpower. And with the complexity of the Transcript and versatility 
of Rev, they will always tend to be quite big.
