You may buy this edition if you are interested in potential vorticity. But I do not recommend this edition if you are a beginner of Atmospheric Dynamics, except you enjoy the feeling of finding the typos or confusing yourself.
I bought this textbook from Amazon when it was just released, and it cost me about 90 bucks. But the previous editions are way cheaper!
THE standard on dynamic meteorology... also doubles as a sleeping aid (careful, results can be abrupt).
