Would you care to comment on the manual differences?

- The changes are only an update of new terms, new positions, and new materials.
For instance Venturing doesn't have anything to do with a troop, so the
Scoutmaster's JLT kit no longer has a Venture Crew Chief position
description, but now has a Venture Patrol Leader position description. They
added the Order of the Arrow Representative position and even made a guide
for conducting a new troop member orientation.
The new guide added about 25 pages. The position descriptions replaced
Woods Wisdom with the four Troop Program Features books.
Bottom line, I think it is worth buying the $7.95 kit, but not the $16.95
video. Hey, they needed to proof read the video script - unless there
really are Varsity crews and Venture teams. The video is unchaged except
for a slight update of the narrator script - that wasn't adequately proof-read.
