Has anyone compared the 2006 with the 2001 edition? I am wondering how substantive the changes are, especially since it costs $41 for the second edition, while the first edition is available for as low as $5. Obviously if a major re-write has resulted in significant changes throughout the text, then purchasing the newer edition is an important consideration. (According to the information he's added/altered material to reflect new natural disasters and in the wake of 9/11). But if the changes are minor, I'd like to know before I pay eight times as much for a version of this book. I'm using the text for research purposes and no libraries near me have it, nor is it available as an e-book.

well, well there are not to many filmbooks about disastermovies. They certainly had there best time in the seventies with films like "Airport", "Earthquake" oder "Towering Inferno" but also the following decades brought us films like "Volcano" or "Twister". The books describes the genre starting in the 1910's, with detailed analyses of the 70's films. I miss a filmographie with detailed informations - instead you'll find a list of disastermovies including "Batman", "Ben Hur" or even "Dr. Zhivago"... not very helpfull....
