The one on the right looks newer? What's the difference? Did you switch to thin carbon nanotube paper?

yes no new formulas, just thiner paper to make the book more Green! Also uses less energy to get transported.  (yes the new one to the right, possibly it will age faster due to lower mass?)

The second edition blue version to the left!
The second edition Green version to the right!

Your choice blue or green!

I was thinking about it, but then figured out it would likely be of little use!

Mine is a signed collector's item.

Is it a reprint ?

Yes it looks like a Green reprint. (= lower cost and higher margins :-?  Actually I have no idea what they cut the thickness with 1/3. Likely pressures on margins in traditional books. The Millennium generation often prefer very short electron books on FB or snap chat.

"Several psychological studies have shown that people who are simultaneously challenged by a demanding cognitive task and  by a temptation are more likely to yield to the temptation." Thinking fast and slow..

Attention span is drastically reduced by procedural spot thinking (e.g. playing computer games). Unable to think in abstractions w/o concrete examples, e.g. Project Math, bah!
