Step away from the Vehling, step away from the Vehling. This has been
frequently discussed on this list. Back when there was nothing,
nothing, but Flower and Rosenbaum, which was hard to find once
out-of-print before the web, and Vehling, well, this inexpensive
Dover edition was what there was. It was highly flawed, but if it's
all there was, well... Now, however, we have other better resources. >>>
