I have only the first edition, and it's a very good book on the subject. The second and third editions are most likely updated versions and may contain a bit more material, possibly including some newer techniques such as the use of extruded insulation foam board as a scenery base. That wasn't used in the hobby when the first edition was written. I suggest you get the third edition. It will have the most advice, including any new stuff.
