Probably would never use in industry (just run an FEA), but it's good for understanding the fundamental reasons behind material and hardware selection.
I would personally suggest keeping a digital copy just because it's a heavy book and it's 2018.

Update: editing into SI units and Euro-relevance actually seems to have taken a step backwards. On p.13 of the 10th ed. we are asked to consider an AISI 1020 bar of hot-rolled steel 53mm square as a non-standard size. Fair enough, but the first edition uses the example of a 53mm square of spec BS 080M50 which would have been current at the time. Rather than an AISI code they could have used a Eurocode steel. Also, checking through the selected answers section in my 1st ed. they are all in SI units. In problem 1-7 we are presented with double units "0.0125mm in".
Further update: a useful chapter on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) has been added. The first example, fig 20-3, is in inches (probably) though it doesn't really matter. The standard used is ASME Y14.5 which is close to the ISO standard, which would be more relevant to non-US readers, but I think there are differences. Paul Green's book would be a better bet for ISO standard reference.
This bulks out Shigley's earlier work with new and in some cases more detailed material.
Worthy of a place on any Designer's desk.
Only two things distinguish it from a new book. The first page (blank) sticks out and gets torn as result (pages are very thin). The other thing is the page don't flip as nicely as they would with a new book, but that is to be expected.
