I have them, unfortunately, this is an absolutely horrible time for me, so I cannot give explanation.
They are similar, but require a pretty massive amount of terminological mapping between the two. The typology of predicate types set out in Rijksbaron's book is differs greatly from the Vendler-Dowty description. For reference, its the same as the one used by Sicking & Stork in their Two Studies of the Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek
--or better, Sicking and Stork us Rijksbaron's typology.
The best I can do for now is say that:
Rijksbaron is *not* using Vendler. His starting point is Dik's system of states-of-affairs, which he then thoroughly revises in light of Aristotle's discussion of kinesis vs. energeia in Metaphysics. Granted, that's essentially where Vendler started, too, however, without first mapping the terms.
PS - Just looked up the price for Rijksbaron's book on Amazon. Yikes! $85? I paid $17 for my copy. If you're willing to pay international shipping, there are much cheaper copies on Abebook:

PPS - Also, ignore the review of the book on Amazon. The guy's criticisms are way off base.
