definitely read the 2nd one, the newer one. and watch the dvd.
you can get it out of the library.
or, you can sit and read it in a bookstore like borders.
amazon.com should have the newer version,2009, for sale at a cheaper price.

I've had the old one for years now (bought it for my mom!) and it's good but I've read through the new one and it has a lot more information and updated. It does have the dvd and also has more stuff about wavy hair compared to the old one.

The old one is worth about $.33 because it has very little information. The new one is MUCH better. The DVD is really helpful in helping you learn how to handle your hair.
If you don't have a lot of money to spend, the best "bang for the buck" is Struttswife's ebook. I think it's $9.95 and available here: Live Curly Live Free - Home It doesn't have information that you might not find on nc.com, but it's all in one place. It has A LOT more information then the CG book.
