Well, as Jeremy himself points out, he wasn’t actually involved in the second edition. That’s a little disappointing, but it’s still based on his first edition, and the ideas and concepts still carry through, so no harm, no foul.
BUT this book is terrible to read. The typesetting is truly a mess. A tiny, cramped font is paired with tight leading and other poor spacing decisions, making it hard not only to scan, but hard to focus on in the first place. It’s really disappointing. I haven’t seen the ebook version, so I don’t know if it’s different than the print one. If someone has seen both, leave a comment and let us know.
I still think the book is worth the $35, because the knowledge it imparts is invaluable. Just be prepared to have to make yourself read it.
