The book web site ( has no mention of an  
updated revision, so I'm betting that the later date on the kindle  
edition is just the date that the kindle version of the original  
edition was published. For example, the kindle edition of the TT book  
is dated 7 Jun 2011, but I know that's the same as the 2003 edition).

No idea. 2002 was about the last time I looked at Mason :)
