Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have personally tried both, and the above posters covered most of the differences. I'll list all that I noticed here:
The DVD does in fact contain several GUI options including KDE and GNOME. You choose this during the installation.
The DVD does NOT allow you to boot into a live session, and runs much like a Windows disc which will let you repair a broken system or install a new system.
The DVD contains all the drivers you will probably need and activates them for you, thus the upgrade process after the initial install is minimal. This is important for certain graphics cards.
The Live CD will be, as one other poster mentioned, very light in what it has. It will have one of two GUIs and only the very necessary drivers. After the install, you will probably need to download several hundred megs worth of upgrades. I think mine was around 700 megs.
Over all I had a better experience with the DVD as it made everything much smoother and easier. Having a repair option is also great. However, not everyone can download 3 gigs of data at a reasonable time.
