I read both the 1st and 2nd editions, and the 2nd was better, no so much in writing style but it did have more content, hundreds of pages more.
After listening to the MIT courseware on EE 101, the basics haven't changed in 20 years, although those videos were recorded in early 2000s.
Whatever happened to Paul Horowitz? We hear a lot about Hill but not the first author.
