Python Cookbook 2nd Ed

Hi,

Is the second edition of the Python Cookbook worth getting if you have
the first edition? How much new material is there in the 2nd edition?

Thanks,

While I have dived into it yet, I received a copy from O'Reilly last week.
It's about twice the size of the first edition, and I noticed it has a
chapter at the end related to Python 2.3 and 2.4, so my guess would be it's
worth it.

(Submit a recipe to the cookbook website that's accepted for the 3rd edition
and you can get it as a comp from O'Reilly. ;-)
