This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The farmer's son doesn't immediately know it's a bomb until he takes it apart. The scrap collector knows immediately it is a bomb.
   Cabot does not die. Cabot dies after the bomb blast.
   The President and his advisors (except Ryan) believe that Normanov has lost control of the Soviet military. This belief is proven false. Only Ryan and Cabot believe the possibility that Nemerov has lost control of the Russian military--the President and his advisors believe that Nemerov is in full control of the military. This is shown to be partially true, as several corrupt Russian soldiers prepare to strike the United States.
   This doesn't happen. Spinnaker gives Ryan a gift to celebrate his engagement to Cathy.
   The Arab terrorists are beheaded in Saudi Arabia. Ryan witnesses their death and is given the sword used for that purpose. This event inspires Ryan's future Secret Service nickname of SWORDSMAN. This doesn't happen.
