    There are "drafts" available currently for ICD-10-CM, but not yet for ICD-10-PCS. You can purchase them from most of the major coding resource suppliers.

    Default ICD-10 books
    Most books will not be available until 2012 when the code set is frozen. Publishers don't want the expense of updating. Hope this helps

    You can find a free downloadable online version of the most recent edition, as well as free training modules on the WHO's website...The links are on this page:

    Default clarification
    Let me clarify, because I reread your question. ICD-10 code books are available in draft. Got mine from Ingenix. Instructional books, teaching books are in short supply until the code set is frozen.
