What is the difference between the Dramatica Theory book 4th Edition, downloaded from the wesite, and the 10th Anniversary edition? I mean i know one is updated, but should I get the 10th ann edition, is it THAT different? Is the 4th edition outmoded or something, or can I get by with it?

Most all of the additions are available in some form for free on Dramatica.com. The largest addition is the inclusion of the Act Structures material located in my white paper on the subject (http://www.dramatica.com/theory/addl_materials/dact_structures/index.html).

The other noticeable change is the use of the newer terms, such as Situation and Activities instead of Universe and Physics. The newer terminology makes it a bit more 'readable.'
