The hardcover is different from the paper back-some typographical errors fixed. But for big science buffs looking for sound facts, there seems to be quite a few chemistry errors and invalid scientific concepts contained that haven't yet been corrected. For the random perfume and scent buff, this could be a curious tease into the science.
