Let's take a step back and say that the cookbooks of Isa Chandra Moskowitz, a number of which were co-written with Terry Hope Romero, changed my life. I've been a vegetarian/vegan for a while, and I've owned different of vegetarian/vegan cookbooks, and I've always cooked, but something about Ida and Terry's stuff is on a whole other level. It's like the apex of the form. The book Isa Does It was the first cookbook I owned where I just went through and cooked almost everything, one after another. The results always seemed to range from "Unbelieveably Good" to "Really, Really Good." I love the diversity of the recipes, including curries, nori roles, pies, pizzas, tofu/tempeh/seitan creations, comfort foods to fancy stuff, quick and easy meals to more involved. And the books are charmingly written, the attitude best described as punk, urban, DYI, and funny, and I appreciate that this attitude was never entirely lost/abandoned as time went on and mainstream acceptance must have been a lure. After finding their work, I started cooking a whole lot more, and now I'd say that cooking is a bit of a hobby. If I had the energy, I'd cook every night. Their cookbooks were instrumental in that development.
The new edition is gorgeous. It's a nice, sturdy hardcover without a slip cover. The cover illustration looks great -- an ornate V immersed in various growy green things, all in different shades of green. The front and rear cover is glossy, and the inside pages are of a higher quality than before. The formatting has been changed; in essence, the new edition looks very similar to Isa Does It and The Superfun Times Vegan Holidary Cookbook, which makes sense because the copyright page says that the book was designed by Laura Palese, who, as it turns out, also designed Isa Does It and Superfun Times.
Most recipes now occupy their own page. The recipes themselves are easy to read and are well organized, and include mini-intros, notes, tips, and icons. It looks like some of the recipe's mini-intros have been revised. The Amazon blurb claims that 250 recipes have been revised, and the text now includes 25 new recipes. There's new intros written by both the authors, but it still includes the old one. And there's the addition of photographs, which, frankly, adds a lot. I'm not sure if they were also taken by Vanessa Rees or Joshua Foo, who worked on Isa Does It and Superfun Time (for some reason I couldn't find the photograph attributions in this new edition), but they are similar in style and are beautiful. My only gripe (if you can even call it that), is that I prefer cookbook bindings/spines that are designed to lay flat. Isa Does It has this type of binding/spine, but Superfun Times and the Veganomicon doesn't either. It's nice when you don't have to put a stack of CDs or whatever on the corner to try to keep it down, etc. But the old edition didn't have it either, and it's be no means a deal breaker.
I highly recommend this new edition. If you are new to Ida/Terry and don't have the old edition, this is the one to get of the two. If you have the old edition and are considering getting the new one, do it. It isn't essential to switch, I mean, you will survive just fine with the old one, but the changes are aesthetically and content-lly substantial enough to justify a new purchase, as it feels like an entirely new book.
Some call this The Joy of Vegan Cooking. Well, this essential tome just got even more essential-er.
The recipes call for more oil than I use in my cooking but I just reduce and/or sub veg broth as needed.

I also like the sauce and dip section as I was eager to find a vegan sour cream and cheese sauce recipe too.
This book has it all and I would recommend to anyone!
As an 'enquiring' vegan I found the lack of pictures disappointing and the range of recipes just not there.
The recipes seemed a bit dated and lacked general appeal.
