SMARTupdates, Changes, and Revisions

The Lightning Press is committed to providing the best and most relevant doctrinal material to our readers and are vigilant in reviewing new publications and looking at ways to incorporate the material into our SMARTbook series. Because our reference books are based on groups of military publications, our goal has always been to keep our books as up-to-date as possible by planning revisions in keeping with the “core set” of manuals upon which a particular SMARTbook is based. We generally publish a new edition/revision for a title approximately every 3-4 years. It’s our way of ensuring the titles remain as relevant and timely as possible for our readers.

In addition to revisions and changes, we publish incremental “SMARTupdates” when feasible to update changes in doctrine or new publications to portions of our SMARTbooks (that don’t necessarily warrant a complete new edition/revision of the entire book). SMARTupdates are printed in a format that allow the reader to insert the updated material into the original GBC-bound book by simply opening the plastic-comb binding, removing the old pages, and inserting the new pages. The decision to publish a SMARTupdate will depend on the number of pages affected, the extent of the change from current doctrine, the publishing cycle of other manuals in the series, etc. Updates will be announced via our SMARTnews Email List (below)!
