As the original poster, I've been checking this thread and one on Bogleheads.org started by Mike Piper on this free offer (link: https://www.bogleheads.org/forum/vie...wpost=27051470
) Some posters there have experienced issues downloading the updated version, especially if they had previously purchased the book if they did not use Amazon's Update function under Manage Your Content and Devices

Might not hurt to contact him and ask if you can't download the revised version. My updated version has a 2015 copyright date.
