Are your managers ex-military. 3-ring binders are a standard documentation
format for the U.S. military.
There are several advantages: price, ease of updating, easy to lay open for
hands free reading, easy to remove pages to photocopy. I have also heard
from guys in the field that a huge binder makes an excellent doorstop.
One thing you may want to point out to them is that the holes tend to tear
after long-term use and pages will hang loose or fall out completely. There
may also be the temptation for users in large offices to remove pages for
their own use and return the rest of the book to the library.

The management of my company decided LONG ago that they wanted our product
(mainframe & PC software) documentation distributed to our customers in
3-ring binders. It's been that way ever since. They like the way the binders
look on their bookcases. They think it's a *good* look.
