Benedictine Breviary? Monastic Diurnal? Info Needed!

 Reader Norman Hartley writes:

Hi Daria, can you explain what the difference is between traditional Benedictine Office breviary such as the (Farnborough edition) Monastic Diurnal,and the single volume breviary?

I could tell Norman a few random fact about either, but since I own neither,my descriptions would be woefully incomplete. So,  would  any of you who own--or better yet, use--these books, please tell us about  them in the comments?  Using the basic, single-volume Christian Prayer breviary as the starting point, tell us how these other breviaries are different.  
Tell us what are the  pros and  the cons of using them. 
Thanks.
