Laura Stamm's Powerskating... get now or wait?

Quick question:

The fourth edition of Laura Stamm's powerskating book comes out in September. Do you think it's worth waiting until September to get that one (I'd like to improve my skating a bit BEFORE the start of the season!) or should I just grab edition 3?

I ask b/c edition 3 was released in 2001... the game has changed quite a bit since then.

I actually just ordered the Second edition off of amazon. 50 cents used. Figured it'd tide me over until the new one came out.

Besides, how can you not buy something with the Whale on the cover.

If you're in no rush to learn skating then I guess you can wait. But I've heard that the current edition is really good so if say you play to play ice hockey in September you should get now.

I can't believe that the book has changed that much between 3 and 4 that it would be worth waiting. You can get a whole lot of ice time and use the info in the current edition between now and Sept.
