Dunno! I haven't read the fifth!
But I do recall in the introduction that they've included more routes (he did a circ between 2001-2005, the details of which are in his recent memoir) and that there's a large number of GPS waypoints in there now, all of which he warns are of the "landfall" variety, i.e. a few miles off anything potentially dangerous.
He has also expanded his "tropical storm" periods, due to the increasing unpredictability of when these seasons are tending to end in some of the more preferred sailing routes.
It's a real doorstopper of a book...I'm only 50 pages in or so.
