In the description it says it has 912 pages, but it actually has 959 pages. it would be great if someone could change that.

Bea Per Worldcat (GR preferred source for page count), the page count for that ISBN is 912 pages.

The GR Librarian Manual defines page count this way: The number of pages in a book is meant to include all content except for advertisements and preview chapters for other books. Included end material may include acknowledgments, afterwords, appendices, bibliographies, glossaries, indexes, notes, and suggested discussion questions.

Introductory material paged using roman numerals is not included in the total page count.

Please verify your count with this definition.
