Wait a minute. I have not said anything about this book in a public forum
for several years and I have not even SEEN the revised edition only the
first edition. Even such noted and revered luminaries as Edward Hobbs have
recommended this book and I am certainly not going to second guess Edward on
this subject.

My main comment about the first edition was that it was very basic. Some
people need a very basic book and I am sure it would not have come out in a
second edition if it wasn't being of any service.
