I picked up the previous version; this book is excellent! Its become indispensible at my gaming table, comprehensive and fully extant, even alchemical substances, poisons, etc.; the best part, when it gets updated I get the update for free! Now, it does contain some optional rules for those of us who like our combat a bit more realistic, yet it keeps the simplicity of the 5e design philosophy. Some parts of it harken back to 1e, for example the complete list of polearms, and includes additional exotic weapons from settings like Eberron. As a veteran DM of 28 years, I full endorse this product. Now I need this to be available on POD.
