The original was good and the second edition has expanded on that with some more detail along the lines of structuring your game and using different genres or settings. I highly recommend at least trying this out if you want to take roleplaying back to the original style back when people would sit around storytelling. It's not for everyone I'm sure but, there are many people that wouldn't usually play any roleplaying games but will get involved in this kind of thing. It's more roleplay than game. Also you don't have one person being a GM while others play and you can play anytime you like without having to all be around a table in the same place.
