It depends on your level of understanding of GRASS; there is still a lot 
of relevance to GRASS 6.x in the 2nd Ed., but at the same time, lots has 
changed. If it's within your budget, get the 2nd Ed., otherwise wait for 
the 3rd Ed. Also, with book publishing, (I'm guessing) it *could* be the 
middle of 2007 before the book is available. Overall, I'd say meet your 
needs now, but realize you'll have to get more up-to-date info through 
the GRASS User's Manual, GRASS Wiki, and elsewhere.
