Looks like this edition actually has less material in it than the original - 816 vs 842 pages. Any idea what specific advances in the field are included in this update? I know it is a newer edition, but I could not tell from Amazon what exactly has been revised.

I do know this, in an interview with Keener, he said he has matured greatly in his thinking and is almost embarrassed by the first edition and desires everyone would see his better thinking in the newer edition.

I saw a previous thread asking for this, but it never seemed to take off for some odd reason.

Here's where it has only received 39 votes:

Quality over quantity?
