DO NOT BUY THE NEW EDITION (2rd printing, 2015) IF YOU CAN GET AN EARLIER ONE!!
on 27 November 2015
Okay, I love this book, and need not say much about it, if I were to lose everything except the knowledge in this book, it would be okay, if I lost nothing, but the knowledge contained in the book, I don't know, but my life would be very very different. If I were to go to an island alone for the rest of my life, and could only bring one thing. This book would be it. I am not kidding.
Okay, but that's not the reason I decided to review the book. It's because of the new 'revised and edited' edition. I'ts reedited by a certain Sudhakar S. Dikshit. AND APPARENTLY HE JUST ADDED A LOT OF TYPOS AND SOME PICTURES WITH STUPID DESCRIPTIONS. AND THEN HE CHOSE SOME RANDOM QUOTES. THE BOOK IS NOW FULL OF TYPOS, AND FONT MISTAKES. I HAD AN EARLIER EDITION, IT DIDN'T HAVE ALL OF THESE TYPE MISTAKES. The edition I got in my hands is the 23rd printing paperback 2015. And it think the same editior must have edited the 5th edition of the hard cover as that is also 'revised & re-edited' in 2015.
The rating is just to give some attention to the differences in the new edition. The book itself is more than five stars to me. Much more.
