Needless to say, I was right in doing so.
I ordered this book February 27, 2012, and according to the inside of my copy, this is the fifth printing (January 2011) of this book. Rest assured that if you order from Amazon, you're getting the latest copy of a terrific resource and at the best price available.
Book: five stars...a terrific resource for anyone writing in the APA style.
Amazon experience: five stars...don't worry guys, you're getting the most recent version.
I hope I have helped alleviate some of the concerns posted here. While getting the proper version of this book might've been a problem in the past, it is no longer an issue.
A formal boycott of this edition successfully led to a second printing in which the errors were corrected. As long as you order a new copy, not a used one, you should be safe. If you buy a used copy, make sure that you do not get a first edition -- it is a complete waste of money.
To have grammar and writing errors in a book about grammar and writing is shameful. How much does your organization really care about the reputation it is presenting? Do you have editors reviewing your works before publication? Are your editors paying attention to their work? If you cannot hold yourself to the standards you have set out in your own publication, then your publications should not exist!
If you need this book, demand a corrected reprinting! If you are a university, you also demand a corrected reprint. This organization should not set standards they are not going to comply with. I give them an "F"
Update: 3 months after submitting my complaint to APA I received a letter stating that a reprint was in the works and that anyone who bought the edition with all the mistakes would have a short time span to return it, without charge and postage covered, for the corrected addition. My faith was somewhat restored in the power of honest critical reviews.
Update 2: received the corrected version and all the mistakes I found in the 6th ed. have been corrected. their book now gets a "B" but the organization still gets a "C" for the "holier than thou attitude".

Is great to have as a reference for college classes. It takes you step by step through how to cite just about any reference you use. Worth it's weight in only the 1st semester.Published 2 days ago by Heather S
Needed the book to get familiar with how to cite certain research in a paper; but, this is a pretty dry and boring book. An excellent substitute for Ambien.Published 5 days ago by Leonard Resto
Great to have this in electronic format. I hope they don't come out with a new one, or else this one will be worthless.Published 5 days ago by Mayuyo
Easy to read and find answers to questions on APA formatting. I had to purchase it for school but would recommend it for those who want an easy way to understand APA formatting.Published 6 days ago by Meri
