Lost Art of Steam Heat - Which version to buy?

New to Steam Heat, silly question, but hope someone can point me in the right direction?

The book “Lost Art of Steam Heat”. Assume I buy the revised version and assume it contains all the information in original version?

I am about to convert my single pipe steam system from oil to gas. Also want a couple of other things addressed, main vent, rad vents, some clinking sounds...etc. Therefore I want to learn as much as I can before I select a Steam Heat expert.

Also does anyone recommend any experts in the Madison NJ area?

Thanks in advance
Paul

    Revised version has everything in the original, plus more...

    On experts, try @EzzyT or @Dave0176 .

    Grab Greening Steam while you’re at it. They go very well together. It has a been a great resource to show my customers.
    Never stop learning.
