Is the 2013 edition fine or has a lot of stuff changed?

Book is nearly worthless. Pathoma is for videos.

There are errors that get fixed with each edition, so if you decide to use an old copy make sure you check the errata on his website. Also, while I think the book and videos are best used together, the book is more valuable than the videos. Yeah, he explains some things in more detail, but a lot of time he's reading straight from the text or just saying what's in the text in different words.

Disagree, I just read the book and did not watch the videos (took way too long...). If I could go back and just get the book I would

To Op I don't think it would make that much of a difference. FA is a different story
