Dominik (constantine316) | 4 comments The description of this book is incomplete and wrong (page number).

Unfortunately, I cannot change it myself.

Thanks for the help and efforts!

lethe | 13747 comments Added description and cover from Amazon.

Do you have the book yourself? Amazon is not a good source for page counts. Worldcat has "ca. 300" pages.

Dominik (constantine316) | 4 comments yeah, I have the book, and the description here is correct: (bottom, section 'Bibliographic Information')

it has 384 pages.

Thanks for your help!

lethe | 13747 comments Corrected.

Dominik (constantine316) | 4 comments I'm sorry to bother you one more time: the publication date is still not correct. I talked to the author a couple of months ago, so I'm quite positive that the publication year is 2015 not 2012 or 2014. Although I found different months of publication on the internet (april/may) the year should definitely be 2015. Maybe you have more experience in where to look at to find correct information.

(and the publisher should be Springer VS, but I dont want to leave the impressionthat I got OCD :).

lethe | 13747 comments Worldcat says 2011 but both Springer and DNB have 2015 as pub year with no mention of earlier editions. (The pub year was added by an import bot and was pushed back several times by the same bot.) Have corrected it:

DNB says 402 pages though. Are there any pages after 384 and if so, what do they contain?

Dominik (constantine316) | 4 comments oh sorry yeah, to clarify:

the book has indeed 402 pages in total, the 384 pages exclude the first 18 pages, which cover the title, table of contents, list of figures and the preface/acknowledgements (2 pages). The actual content starts at page 19.

The printed page count is a bit confusing, because it only starts at page 2 of the table of contents and begins at 10 (while there are only 7 preceding pages including the cover page).

lethe | 13747 comments OK, in that case 384 it is. GR doesn't count preliminary pages.

Gruia | 260 comments Hello,

Please correct the „first published” field for the book bellow, from year 1005 to a less salient 2004. Looked interesting on my stats, though!

It gets confusing when a thread linked to a specific book or author is also used for other books. I am closing this thread. Start new ones for other books.
