In 2002, he and co-author Andrew Greenberg published the 2nd edition, hardbound. The authors reorganized, re-edited, and in large part re-wrote the book, and they published the resulting 3rd edition in August 2008.

The treatise is updated with pocket-parts released every July or August. The unabridged text is also on WestLaw.
