We're compiling the best Holiday 2016 music gear deals. See them here.
Let me just start out by saying I have the third edition, not the second edition (whose cover is pictured on Equipboard), and that I have never read the second edition and thus have no ability to compare the two editions. Anyhow, if you could buy only one book on music production for whatever your favorite EDM genre is, choose this one. Rick Snoman's editor may suck (this book is filled with so many grammatical errors that it makes the book unreadable at times), but this book is so comprehensive that you'll probably forgive him in the end.
