I just ordered this book from Amazon, it is the same that my father used ten years ago. Can I still use it for learning LaTeX or I should get the last edition (2007)?

    There have been several changes between the first and second edition; and the book doubled in size. The first edition is a nice antique. – egreg Jan 4 '16 at 16:56

    I would get the 2007 one. I do not find it any of them good for learning LaTeX, but great for looking up stuff when you have forgotten some syntax details. There is a plethora of good online guides. Here is a good place to start: dickimaw-books.com/people/nicola-talbot.html – daleif Jan 4 '16 at 16:56
