It's basically an expanded and updated version of The Great Beyond. TGB was written before Pathfinder came out (it's 3E material), and there have been a lot of expansions and additions/clarifications/changes in the years since (not to mention, of course, the PF system). Many of the newer products that have been coming out for PF have been doing this sort of thing, picking up outdated (and in many cases, out of print) earlier products and updating and revising and rereleasing them. Some of the race books that came out in early 3E/PF days were cherrypicked for some of the other race books that have come out, as an example.
