    $\begingroup$ In the link to the more recent book there is a section called FrontMatter that you can download for free, with a detailed outline and a preface that outlines the purpose of the book (it makes no reference to the earlier book). My impression from reading this is that the 2d book is more complete and self contained and would be the one I would get, it replaces the other. $\endgroup$
