Unravels the mysteries of James Joyce.(New York Times)
A daunting and delightful book.(Modern Fiction Studies)
All readers who contemplate any exegetical move whatsoever in the Wake must put the revised Annotations on the top of their pile of reference books.(James Joyce Quarterly)
I don't think we still have readers such as Roland McHugh who read the Wake without any help: most novices read the Wake in one hand and McHugh's Annotations in the other.(A Collideorscape of Joyce)
It is hard to think of any reader of Finnegans Wake who would not have Roland McHugh's Annotations... on his desk.(Win Van Mierlo James Joyce Literary Supplement)
McHugh remains admirable for his collection.(Tim Conley James Joyce Quarterly)
About the Author
Roland McHugh has been studying Finnegans Wake since 1965. In 1973 he moved to Dublin with a view to understanding the book more completely and has lived there ever since. His book, The Sigla of "Finnegans Wake," was described by Clive Hart as "the best book on Finnegans Wake yet written."

(2) Editions: It seems to me that the primary difference between the second and third edition is typesetting: the text is smaller, permitting more flexibility in how it is arranged on the page (something that makes sense only if you are familiar with how McHugh's works). There are some new notes added, though in proportion it is a small amount. You can go through a number of pages without finding something new. As such, if you already have the second edition, I don't believe the third edition is a necessary purchase. And, if you are trying out the waters for the first time, you are not losing much by picking up a used second edition. (Also, the second edition is printed on heavy stock; in comparison the third edition feels fragile.) (I do not know for the first edition.)
