Default Questions about a new book?

I've got several questions about a new book that came out recently; "The Complete Illustrated Directory of Salmon & Steelhead Flies" by Chris Mann.
1. Is the book any good, worth owning?
2. I noticed on Amazon that this title is listed twice, once @ $99.95 and once @ $52.23. The first is published by Frank Amato Publications (Sept 1 2008) while the second is published by Merlin Unwin Books (Oct 10 2008). Both quoted prices are for new books.
Are these the same identical book? Obviously the $52.23 price point is a lot more attractive!
If any one can give an opinion of the quality of this book or illuminate me on the difference between the two publishers I would appreciate it.
