message 1: by Joe (new) - rated it 2 stars

Joe (symphony_red) | 173 comments Here's a link for the book from the publisher:
http://images.perseusbooks.com/image/...

Arenda | 19903 comments Please link to the book page, not only the image.
That link is for a different isbn 9780465028139: http://search.perseusbooksgroup.com/s...

I have added the cover from Worldcat for isbn 9780465028139

Joe (symphony_red) | 173 comments Actually publishers often don't expose all the isbns for a book, particularly library editions. For example, in this case the parent company's website lets you pick a format, but doesn't change the isbn in the display:
http://search.perseusbooksgroup.com/s...

Similarly the actual publisher's site only lists the paperback edition:
http://www.basicbooks.com/full-detail...

And takes you to that page even when they do surface an ebook link on a page like this (in the 'also by' section) for example:
http://www.basicbooks.com/full-detail...

Generally speaking you should avoid using worldcat images since basically anyone can upload any image they want. In this case it looks like it's just a lower-res version of the publisher's.

Arenda | 19903 comments The image linked to in message 1 is different from the Worldcat cover (recommendation at the top of the cover: one line or two lines).

Here is a link from a library website: http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/de...
that has the same cover as Worldcat (might be the source of the Worldcat page) for isbn 9780465028139
