Does anyone have any experience with the International editions of the BRS books? Are they exactly the same (format, color, etc.) as the US versions? I don't care about hard/softcover or a different cover on the book. I'm more trying to figure out if the books are significantly worse in quality, or printed in black and white if the US edition books are in color (idk if this is true). I'd appreciate any insight from those of you who have the international editions. Thanks!

I've bought several international editions of various medical books including a couple from the BRS series (e.g. BRS Pathology). A friend and I compared once and it looks virtually identical. The quality of the paper of the international edition seems a bit less but not significantly less. I think I got a great deal overall because mine was much cheaper.
