I find it odd that the bookstore has two additions to the same book. It appears this version lacks the extra links that the other book has. Both books have hyperlinks, making it very useful as a field book, and both books also act the same way within the app. I'm not sure if the extra cost of one addition over the other is warranted, I purchased my copy on sale. The only link that I found so far points back to the organization, and you can easily highlight, cut, and paste in Safari and go to the same place.
I would like to see this edition updated so that the extra links were put in, but I'm not holding my breath.
