The first English edition is based largely on the 3rd German edition.
But since it was proof-read by people who were not involved in the
German book, it does do some things a little differently. The most
visible differences are:
* English version has an appendix with country-specific OSM information

PDF (http://www.openstreetmap.info/content/mapping_the_world.pdf) and
People are welcome to edit it and we might include updated versions in
* English version has 2 or 3 additional screen shots in the editor
chapters, and discusses Potlatch before JOSM rather than after.
* English version has a more detailed and illustrated Mapnik style
example (example source downloadable here:
But apart from that the changes are negligible. We changed examples and
illustrations to better fit the international audience, added in a few
tags - that's all I remember.
