Are you using the mobile or web app?
The mobile and web app always have the most recent and most up to date version of the Exodus 90 Spiritual Exercise. The book is not necessary. Some men like to have the book in addition to the app. They use the book in the chapel during their holy hour and the app both to stay connected to their fraternity and for its features that aid in the Exodus 90 Spiritual Exercise and the Day 91 Exercises.
Currently the mobile/web app is the only place men can access the Day 91 spiritual exercises after their completion of Exodus 90.
The book can be purchased in your mobile or web app.
From the home screen, click the settings button (gear icon in the top right corner).
From your settings look for the words that say "Buy the Book."
Click "Buy the Book" and follow the prompts for purchasing. The book can be purchased for $30.

Each year of Exodus 90 thus far we have taken feedback from participants to improve the experience for the future. Today's version of the Exodus 90 Spiritual Exercise is the fruit of a living fraternity.

Mobile or web app
Is your book from before January 2019?
(This book would have a man hiking in the mountains on the cover.)
If so, then yes you will want to get the new book or you and your fraternity brothers will be quite disconnected. Some days you won't even have the same scripture, especially towards the end.
The entire Exodus 90 Spiritual Exercise was re-written by author and director of mission, Nathaniel Binversie, and released for the first time in January 2019. All ninety reflections were re-written to be cleaner, more relatable to lay men, and flow from day one to day ninety in a more unified way.
In addition the prologue of the exercise, now referred to as the Field Guide, was completely rethought and reworked with heavy support from Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Overall much of the exercise will still feel quite similar to the original text in thematic. Though, many of the reflections will be quite different or even completely different than what was originally there. This is especially true for Days 30-90.
The scripture translation used was also replaced. Now the RSV-2CE has been inserted for all the days reflections, a more accurate and easier to read translation of the bible from what was used before.
Is your book from January 2019 or later?
(This book would have an all orange cover with just the "Exodus: Ninety Days" logo on the front.)
If you have this version you may consider getting the latest version of Exodus 90.
In the later portion of 2019 a group of priests and theologians reviewed the Exodus 90 Spiritual Exercise and a few further changes were made to clean up the language, fix any errors, and make commentary an preparation more accurate and more helpful to men taking up this exercise.
In January of 2020, the latest, and final major-change version of the exercise has been released. This version has been granted both a Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur from the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, the home diocese of Exodus Inc.
Is your book from before January 2020?
(This book would have an all orange cover with just the "Exodus" logo on the front without the words "Ninety Days in the logo.)
If you have this book, you have the latest major version of Exodus 90. Any further versions would only contain minor grammar or spelling changes, if any are to be found in this version.
