I see that Springer is advertising a 2nd edition of the book. The downloadable front matter does not have a "What's New" or 2nd edition preface. Could you post some information as to what is new in the book? (I already have the first edition)
Thanks

The information below is taken from Front Matter PDF file that can be found on this page:
http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/9781461451044/page/1 (http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/9781461451044/page/1)
Compared to the first edition, this second edition of the book contains additional material: Sections 6.3.3 and 6.3.4 elaborate on model construction, Section 8.3 describes search and scorebased structure learning, Section 8.4 presents a worked example on structure learning, Section 10.3 describes twoway parameter sensitivity analysis, Section 10.4 describes parameter tuning, and an appendix provides a quick reference to model construction with lists of recommendations and pitfalls for the model builder. Finally, lists of examples, figures, and tables have been added
