I got the 1st edition a few weeks ago and while interesting it was not the most easy to use. It was also lacking some important (in my view) information like the altitude adjustment. I have been canning my garden veg. for the past 10 years and I can confirm that the info was all A-OK but not very nicely presented.
In this second edition, the authors seem to have resolved all the shortcoming of the first one. It now include a lot more info and tables with processing time and pressure. Some interesting web links, to reference documents and sites, are also included.
I also like the recipes list. They are basic ones but very nicely formatted and sorted by level of complexity.
Overall; for a book that is sold 0.99 (free after the rebate when I got it) it is a great resource that should be very useful to anyone interested in home canning.
I needed to know a few things. Like why my tomatoes
ruined even though the jar sealed, this helped me
to know to add salt to the top of tomatoes
before sealing. Not to turn the jars upside down
like with other jared items.

Tremblay, Edith; Lafleur, Francois (2011-06-21). JeBouffe Home Canning Step by Step Guide (second edition) Revised and Expanded (Kindle Location 2). JeBouffe. Kindle Edition. This book provides a quick and simple overview of canning methods and what you will need.
The book will not replace some of the other canning books available for basic canning, but would be a handy reference to use. I feel it is more useful to someone who already has a bit of experience with canning than for the person who is trying it for the first time.
There are some interesting new recipes included, and listed with a scale of difficulty. I intend to try the mango chutney this year! It sounds great.
It described the techniques my own mother used (paraffin) and the one my mother-in-law uses (boiling water). It tells you when they will be adequate, when not and why not. The bottom line is that if you are serious you should buy the right equipment, namely an autoclave.
The book should have been better edited. The English usage, even simply things like conjugations, is poor. The book appears to have been written by an educated foreigner. Interestingly, however, the measurements and equipment are thoroughly American. Here in Europe we measure in liters and our Mason jars are not threaded. It is a slightly different system, though not enough to cause confusion.
The recipes will have to wait until summer. Since the other reviewers have found them helpful, we will certainly try them.
