    Animator's Survival Kit vs Expanded Edition

    Today I was looking to grab a copy of the Animator's Survival Kit from Amazon, and the site informed me that there was a new edition available. Unfortunately Amazon does not have that version (the expanded edition) in stock, though it is available from some third-parties.

    Here's my dilemma. I'm flying out in a week for work, and was hoping to be able to start reading it on the flight/layovers. If I order the older version from amazon it will certainly arrive in time, but if I order from a third-party it might not.

    I've not been able to find information on what is in the additional 50 pages, so I was wondering if I'll be missing anything of use or interest if I go with the old version? I ask as I've had plenty of experiences with new editions of books adding nothing (I'm looking at you, textbooks).

    Thanks for any information in advance.

    Edit: Cool, posted in the wrong animation subforum because I apparently can't read and can't remember how to delete a thread.

    Hmm, I'm trying to remember since I don't have the book in front of me, but I know he goes over animal walk cycles in the expanded section. I think he might also go more in-depth with arcs.

    Edit: I just talked to a friend who had her copy handy. He also covers phrasing dialogue, flexibility, delays in action, live action reference, and contrasting actions.

    Thanks Jinny.

    Sounds like it would be worth trying to get the expanded edition, hopefully it will arrive in time, if not, so be it.
