Just wondering if I should invest my time/money into this game (having NO experience with it in the past).

Greetings all -
To start, I should say that I have never played (or even viewed) one minute of any of the Football Manager
games. The extent of my video game football experience has been the FIFA series through console games. Since I got rid of my Playstation a couple of years back, I am wondering if I should get into Football Manager for my PC. Just looking to get some opinions.
I have been doing some online reviews over the past few weeks about FM2013 and a lot of people seem to think that they should have waited a while before they purchased...it was buggy, had to wait for patches or updates, etc. Is this normally the case? Should I consider buying FM2014 when it comes out? Or should I wait a couple of months until the testing and updates have finished? Should I buy FM2013 instead?
Also, is it a sim that is fairly easy learning curve? Again, I have NEVER played any iteration of the game, so everything will be new to me (vs. people who have been playing it a while). Just wondering if its worth my month and time to invest. Thanks in advance.
