Lonely Planet

When it comes to travel guidebooks, I'm loyal to Lonely Planet. I've had good experiences relying on these books in times of travel, and have several of these thick travel books gathering dust on my bookshelf. My most recent Lonely Planet purchase was my LP Japan, already bookmarked with sticky notes in excited anticipation of my July trip!

However, I recently learned there is a new Lonely Planet series, Lonely Planet DISCOVER. Before I spend another $30 on another Japan guidebook, I want to know if it's worth the purchase. Has anyone used the Discover series? Or vouch for how it's different than the original? I guess I could just pop into Barnes & Noble, but I figured this might be easier.
