1) There are not really many changes. The transliterations of the bols were changed to make them a little less academic and more intuitive. And the quality of print/binding is far better. A few sections that I thought were a little unclear were rewritten, but this was negligible. Everyone seemed to like the first edition, so there really wasn't much need to make a lot of changes.

The bottom line is that if you have the first edition, there really isn't much of a need to get the second edition. But if you missed out on the first edition, you probably should make an effort to buy this one.

2) Yes they ran out of stock almost immediately. But don't worry, you can still order it. This only means that it might take 10 days to get your copy rather than three.

I still have my signed copy of the 1st edition.

But I know some people who will certainly want to buy... Glad that it has been such a success!
