As much as I loved the 2nd edition, this third edition is just an absolute eye-popper. It has more patterns represented. The company timeline, the color timeline, the pattern thumbnail guide, the color swatches, are all excellent help in identifying glass. It's well formated, easily readable, and has good close-up drawings of the patterns. I especially find it useful to know which patterns and forms are being reproduced. I like the book so well that I have 2 copies. One for home next to my computer and one I carry in the car.
