Pretty straight forward question. I have the older 1963 version printed by Tannens, in the newer version (By Dover?) is it a straight reprint word for word or has it been edited and re-written to be updated to a more current time / language / Way of thinking or anything like that? If any difference at all.

If someone can fill me in, I'm Just curious. I feel like I heard something of that nature from a random person in the past.

Sparked some interest into wanting to out. I sometimes have a hard time following this book and the way it's written.

Thanks.

AFIK, it is the same book. Dover likes to retitle them.

The presentations are not all modern, but they are mostly very good. And those that don't work today (I seem to recall some stuff in the Jinx that used cigarettes as the motivation for going to the pocket, for example, don't recall for sure if any of those ended up in PME) will usually be sound enough in terms of structure to make it worth figuring out whether it can be done over in modern clothes.
