Service manual?

I'm looking into getting a manual from my car and don't know if I should go with one of the ones similar to HAYNES or just get the WORKSHOP SERVICE MANUAL. Any opinions on which is better? Anybody know where to get cheap copies of either one? Any and all info would be much appreciated... thanks

Doing a quick search it looks like Haynes is the only one that makes a repair manual for the first and second gen focus. I have a Chilton but it stops at '07.

A shop manual would be better if you can find one, and you have the money for it. They are usually pretty pricey.
