Comments from Jonathan E. Sisk:

This was not just a new edition, but really a much-improved new book, with much more information on all topics. It still has the useful summary and comments on implementations and the very clear treatment of correlatives and conversions.

The second edition of this book was packaged in a paperback, perfect-bound format. The content was revised to reflect changes that had taken place in the code since the first edition, plus, it gave us the chance to tighten up the loose parts.
