By al means order Jacobson's. Then read them both. Examine the sources cited, and use your judgement to decide who if anyone is biased. That's the fun of studying. I've made my own decision which happens to coincide with SamHood's, but I would never make ir based on opinions on a discussion board. Besides, while I do disagree with Sword on Hood and a few other things, there's much to learn from his books as well. Always read with a skeptical eye and no preconceptions. Your judgement then will ususally be right.
