Thanks, Alan. Here's some of the blurb from the back of the 50th Anniversary Edition: "In this fully revised and expanded Second Edition of Sheldon Hallís highly acclaimed, sell-out book you will ...

Not sure I should add to this thread as I have a vested interest, but... I received the first copies of the revised edition today, so it should hit the streets (or the net) on Friday. If Alan and Pete ...
