  1. This is great news that a lot of us have been waiting for! Well done to the first aid team for all the time and hard work invested in the book…I’m sure we are going to like it. I do have one question though: were the errata from previous editions, especially the 2012 edition, updated in this book?

  2. Yes — I second the above comment. This “update” is useless if you don’t fix the pages and pages of errata. C’mon don’t jerk us around.

    Yes! We have worked hard to address all of the issues from the 2012 edition in the 2013 edition! Here is a quote from someone on Amazon.com who purchased the new edition…
    “After going through a lot of the sections, it appears that the 2012 errors I checked were corrected…”

  4. Honestly, there should be a buyback program for the 2012 or a rebate for the 2013. As others have noted, the errors in 2012 requires hours to correct. I really do expect at least a partial if not full refund for the unprofessional 2012 product.

  5. Right now, the 2013 edition is available at a 40% discount on Amazon.com. Act fast, because this deal won’t last for long.

  6. well i’m agree, there is no doubt about how great the 2013 first aid is but it is not fair, i wasted my money by buying 2012 first aid and it was a terrible mistake which wasn’t my fault……..i would like to have the better one but i’m afraid i don wanna waste my money again….i’m really upset about that 😦
