    Still using my 2nd edition from 12yrs ago.

    This book is invaluable to anyone whether they are a student or not. I bought my book in 1992 when I was a freshman in college. I graduated and today I still use it as an invaluable guide whether to writing for business, refreshing my memory of geography, or typing a coherent e-mail. I would recommend the new edition for anyone with similar needs.
