I have a question and I'm not sure where I ought to ask it.
Should we read previous revisions or editions of the same book before we start reading the newest edition?
For an example:
Is it better way to go edition by edition to know how technology is evolving, or just go by the newest edition and assume that previous versions may no more be relevant as newer will cover everything.
N.B. I am afraid that this question may be out context of a Q&A site, but nobody other than fellow programmers can answer this question. (Of course a librarian or book-seller cannot answer it). Please suggest me in which Stack Exchange site I should post it.
