Mig welding books

I see this book on my E-mail from HF.

Is
this book any good? I am looking to teach myself Mig and Oxy until fall then
go to our College and take all the welding courses.
Any other books worth a damn out there that I could learn by?
I think I bought a book on ebay by MILLER "NEW MIG WELDING BOOK MANUAL GMAW
WELDER " I will know in 3 HR. for $9.50. Better than 25.00 from MILLER.
I would like to get a jump on learning as much as I can before I go for
College. I have to look like I know as much as these kids that just got out
of high school and are starting College Welding courses.

Thanks a lot. Every little bit helps. I will print it out latter for night reading also. I was looking and saw Co2 penetrates deeper than argon / Co2. That I did not know... Cheaper is deeper. But Argon is for the appearance I guess. I think that is what I skimmed over.

I haven't seen that book but HF also sells one called Welding Essentials that I really like. They're not showing info on it on their site but I've seen it in the local HF store.
The Amazon reviewers really like it too:

That's a good site too. Not just for MIG but all sorts of stuff.

I found that book used on ebay "welding Essentials" .. How many pages is it?... It looks thin, but I thought AMAZON had a write up on it being 480 pages under product detail...I could be wrong again.

I took another look, and the one on e-bay does not say "expanded first Edition" like the one on Amazon. Is it still worth buying the one on ebay (I have a bid on this one) or should I buy the expanded first Edition and let the bid go?
