The bad news: An old friend of mine has been told he may not have long to live.
The good news: He offloaded a pile of books to me yesterday. Among them is tAoE vol2. So now I have my old Vol 1, and vol 2.

I guess I should buy Vol 3. But reading this thread learned about the X-chapters, so will wait till that's available too. I hate 'broken links.'

Oh, and some of the books are duplicates (I have already.) I'll be putting those up on buy/sell here, as giveaways.

The bad news certainly sucks. :(  But the good news is interesting, at least -- I don't think I've ever seen a copy of AoE1.  Gotta say I like the cover better than the one on the current edition.

That being said... it would be a huge, huge mistake to pass up AoE3 because a few malcontents are grumbling about the whole X-chapter concept.  What they did publish is a masterwork that blows away its predecessor.   Get it.

Hey, I didn't say I'd pass up on it. I said I'd wait.
There is zero chance of 'missing out', since there are always 2nd hand copies available.
Famous last words. But...

I prefer 2nd hand anyway, because I'm poor.
Also I'm both busy and reading-motivation-depleted these days, so there is no point rushing. I likely wouldn't read it for ages anyway.

Fundamental electronics has changed depressingly little between the 2nd and 3rd editions. The main changes are smaller/cheaper, different recommended components, much faster ADCs/DACs plus DSP, and nanopower electronics.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.
