Abhishek Sachdeva | 1 comments Hi,
I have implemented book search in my application. It returns a list of book but doesn't provide ISBN of a book.
Is there any way that i can get ISBN in search response?

Secondly, I need description of book too in response, but for that I have to request for the book using Goodreads ID.
Is there any way to get partial response only, I mean specific fields that I need (in this case description)?

Ziggurism | 1 comments I am also trying to find a goodreads API method which will return ISBN. search.books don't include ISBN fields. Help would be appreciated.

In order to get a book's ISBN and description, you will have to use the book/show API method. There is currently no way to specify partial responses.

Best regards,
