Twenty-one of 22 chapters from the original edition remain relevant and the same today, only Chapter 22 titled "The Flute Today and Tomorrow" needs a good update on the ever-evolving hardware (new flute designs, Bennett scale etc) and modern flute playing techniques that have surfaced in the last 2 decades. Hence if you don't mind that bit being a little "dated", you will do well to consider a second hand book - which is what I did for $5 plus shipping (compared to $46-%50 full price hardcover and $20 paperback)
I have so many flute books already, but having borrowed a copy (1982 edition) from the local Library, I still had to have this - which I bought eventually. However, I place this 3rd on the list of must haves to both of Trevor Wye's Flute Practice Omnibus and Proper Flute Playing books.
A newer edition akin to this book would have to be Nancy Toff's upcoming 2012 edition of The Flute Book (available on advance order from amazon.com). Toff's book take on a more instructional, informative mode whilst Galway's is akin an intimate fireside chat between friends - if you are a Galway fan, well...then this book will have to do.
[Bought mine second hand through this section but was fortunate enough to score a pristine hardcopy instead. no complaints at all as I much prefer the hardcopy version. Second hand also yields like fruit but at a fraction of the cost)
