Same book different size

Games Workshop just recently release Warhammer 40,000: The Rules and of course they gave it to us exclusively on the Apple iPad (never mind Kindle and Android users, we don't matter) and they gave us a hard bound physical copy. When good old 6th edition was release they did give us two options for a rule book, the first one was just the hard cover rulebook and the other was the smaller rule book that came in the Dark Vengeance box set.

But now we get a new smaller rulebook "built for the gamer" well, shouldn't we have got this when 6th edition first came out? I love the fluff to the game, but why would we need another release of the same book that is just smaller? And if you were one of those players who had to have the new Dark Vengeance box set you already got a smaller copy of the rules. And for the price this small book comes in at $49.50 USD which is a little high for a rulebook and a smaller one at that.

Overall this book isn't worth the money especially for a game that is very expensive to play, if you need a rule book my suggestion is to buy a Dark Vengeance box set take the rule book and eBay the models, I did it and I actually turned a slight profit selling the pieces of the box set as units on eBay and kept the rulebook for myself.
