The third edition of volume 1 is a classic. All three editions are worth having
There are things that change and develop, as well as the inclusion of new material, as the editions appear. The clarity of exposition and the language of explanation get even better, as the editions appear. The insights, some added in the later editions, broaden and challenge one's understanding. Above all, the excitement that one gets by being guided through the advanced theoretical concepts by the authors is unique
The book focuses much more of its attention on understanding. It is this feature that makes Gauge Theories in Particle Physics so invaluable.

the authors have substantially enlarged the text to reflect developments both in university curricula and the field of particle physics.

Reading the book of Aitchison and Hey one can see that the authors have taken a lot of pains
to be understandable by undergraduate students. We believe that the authors were successful in this aspect and their book is very suitable for later stages of undergraduate studies of students of theoretical physics with inclination to particle physics. However, it can still be useful also for graduate Ph.D. students and more educated scientists, who would like to be more familiar with some of the presented problems of particle physics.
