    I think I'm the source Tom is referring to.  At any rate, off list I
    recommended he get a mid-80's edition if at all possible.  The point
    is the overal discusions are still current (save for information on
    electronic navigation systems, perhaps) and this is the last
    two-volume edition before the bean counters trimmed the book to one
    volume.  The added tables may or may not be needed but it's better to
    have them and not need them than vice versa.
