I've had the paper back since the 90's and have never seen a hardback. I doubt there is any difference except the price. It rediculous what happens to prices of certain books that are fairly recent. Its a good reference for flavor parings.

I also have the soft cover edition that was first published in 1996. I use it at least weekly and it is still in mint condition. It is not so much a paperback as the cover/binding is quite durable. It really is the best guide I have found on flavor pairings.
