    What is the difference between the regular Arban method book (red cover) and the Arban platinum edition(silver cover)?
    thanks

    Having a bound copy is really nice. I'd reccommend to anyone I know that they walk into kinkos or officemax (or any other such store) and have them bind it- I got a coil binding I think. Cost me no more than $5, and it is so much easier to use now that I don't spend 5 minutes every day fighting the book with paper clips to get it to lay flat!

    Going back shortly to have them laminate the cover, as I've done with a few other books. Really keeps the cover in pristine shape.

    So Is the platinum the same as the regular edition except it comes with a CD and is bound so it opens on a stand?

    As far as I can tell, yes, that's the only difference.
