I have read edition 2 (Jun 8, 2007) and in my opinion it's a great book. It had some of the most up-to-date information I had ever seen at the time in a appliance repair book. Today I noticed a new edition is out, edition 3 (Sept. 26, 2012).

Same here. A few years ago I cleaned out some of my books and ended up donating two arms length stacks of computer books to our local library. It's amazing what you can learn from reading. :)

Just ordered it on Amazon. I downloaded the kindle sample on my Droid and it's impossible to read.

My wife reads a ton of books on her ipad with the kindle app and loves it.

I tried reading a few computer books on my ipad with the kindle app and iBook but did not care for them.
