The Third Edition is better, IMO
December 1, 2019
This is a decent book but, if I'm honest, the Third Edition is much, much better. I've had two profs say the same. If you can find that version, I highly recommend it since it offers more of the background of GIS rather than just the nuts and bolts of "doing" GIS. Doing does not equal understanding it and that makes a lot of difference, IMO.
