    I'm only about 10 pages into the book (finishing a dissertation at the moment), but you hear Carlos through his writing if that makes sense. I'm looking forward to spending more time with that book.

    A graduate dissertation? What in? Then I can relate to how busy you are. I did my graduate dissertation a loooooong time ago. (in microbiology)

    Doctorate in Business Administration with a focus on Business Intelligence. My dissertation was about the use of business intelligence systems within higher education for decision-making.

    And I bought a copy of the book too, damn you all! :)

    I hope the author keeps up with all the changes to the PRS line up (updated editions) as PRS is not known to stand still!

    OK, replying to my own post for context:

    I received the latest Burrluck PRS book for my birthday. Flipping through it, it seemed quite different from the previous edition that I also had. And it is! Very different flow, more condensed (in fact, fewer pages than the previous one), although still tells the tale from early years through "today" chronologically. I don't think there are any new photos in the new book for the material covered previously, and many photos from that previous edition are gone (to make way for the newer models). And no big center-fold like fold outs in the new one! The newer books is also physically smaller. I like the new content, but I realize now I need to keep the old book for all that was lost in the new edition.

    So now I wonder whether the third edition was truly just a second edition with more pages added to the end (142 pages grew to 174) or if the content of those original 142 pages was altered/condensed. And similar for first to second edition. Anyone have a pair of those editions to compare?
