Default Anyone pick up mtbck 2nd ed? Nearly the same damn thing!

So I got the new edition and compared it to the 1st - everything from the table of contents, chapter length and overall wording/content is an exact duplicate!

The ob-gyn chapters - same page length...
no stats updates...

He may have added a line or note next to a sentence but the spacing line by line on each page hasn't changed - same font. Only noticed that because of the funny forst review on amazon.

Compared around 30 random pages...

Pretty pathetic update and robbery imo. F.you CF

Anyone else have this? I didn't check if the errata from 1st ed was corrected -

I wanted to add : not saying to NOT get/buy (especially if you want to have the most recent) - the post topic was more for those curious since I did purchase it from amazon pre-order/same day delivery.
