Default two types of Goljan ? 480pages and 780pages

which one is mentioned by most of the people in this and other forums ? most say goljan is very usefull book , so i decide to find it . but i found 2 variants
1) red with white cover , 480 pages
2) blue cover 780 pages
both of them is Rapid Review Pathology(this phrase is written on blue, but in red this phrase is inside the book)
i know that 780 pages is bigger than other, so it has more information and is better . but what about 480 paged book ? i compared them , and both are pretty good , even 480 paged is nice to me . so which one is mentioned in polls and the posts of high scorers ?

I only know the 780 page book , I bought but couldn't do it ( previous editions were smaller)
So decided to do Pathoma which is great , and doable
But Goljan is still very great if u can do it , best wishes

Yeah I agree, I have never seen this 'red book' before. The blue one on amazon is the real one.
