Note that the two books you linked to have a different subtitle (189 Programming Questions and Solutions) to the related but different edition associated with this topic, with subtitle: 150 Programming Questions and Solutions. Combined to keep the two sets distinct.


Sergei (mebubo) | 11 comments Thanks, but is it unacceptable for 2 editions to have different subtitiles? Those are still different editions of the same book (189 Programming Questions and Solutions -- 6th edition, 150 Programming Questions and Solutions -- 5th edition).

Wouldn't it be better to merge those editions into the same book page?

It’s about more than merely the subtitle: the one book contains text comprising 49 additional “questions and solutions” that are not part of the other edition; that makes them distinct.


Sergei (mebubo) | 11 comments Still, isn't it common for new editions to add new content? Does it mean we need to split all revised editions into separate book pages on Goodreads?

Usually not an additional 25%.


Sergei (mebubo) | 11 comments The author considers it an edition, not a new book. It says "6th edition" on the cover.

lethe | 14566 comments I would consider this a new edition as well and combine it, especially since GR doesn't find it problematic to combine 400-page abbreviations with 1400-page full works (Les Misérables).
