I have always wanted to read the textbooks in the thread title. But their styld is so old. Does someone know of any "middle of the road" textbooks? By that, I mean: books that basically teach what these two men wrote, but, perhaps with updated language, or some really-not-essential stuff removed. I am not as much interested in learning about topics from the books (well, I suppose I sort of am) -- but more like, learning how these men thought (but with occassional and precise rewording of some basic things).
