Just noticed that there's a new edition of 'Machik's Complete Explanation'

http://www.wisdom-books.com/ProductDetail.asp?PID=25242

New expanded edition. A full translation of the famous work by the great female yogini Machik Lapdron, who developed the Mahamudra Chod teachings for cutting through ego-fixation and confronting negative states of mind.

Has anyone seen a copy? Does it contain much significant new material?

Seems no one has seen the new edition yet.

Just found this on the Shambhala Publications website:

This expanded edition includes Machik Lapdrön's earliest known teaching, the original source text for the tradition, The Great Bundle of Precepts on Severance (Chöd). This pithy set of instructions reveals that the teachings of the perfection of wisdom are the true inspiration for Chöd. It is beautifully clarified in a short commentary by Rangjung Dorje, the Third Karmapa.

Is anyone familiar with the aforementioned 'Great Bundle?'
