I must admit, the 2nd edition adds very little to the first edition.
But I still consider Palitknar's an excellent *starter* (tutorial) book. I
found the discussion of major topics (RTL, gate, behavioral) easy to follow
and the examples really help. After reading this book, I felt ready to
tackle more advanced (and practical) books which require Verilog background.
