This edition is in fact the paperback edition and not a hardback. I have it here with me. I've no idea why the Amazon link it goes to from that page thinks its a hardcover because it isn't (I even bought it from that Amazon page! ETA - I have reported the incorrect info to Amazon.)
I'll have a good look in case there are any other confusions with the actual hardback but nothing so obvious as this one.

lethe | 14848 comments On AbeBooks, some sellers list it as a paperback or softcover, and others as a hardcover:

It seems unlikely, but maybe the same ISBN was used for both formats? Or is it bound but with a flexible cover?

Kath (bendybeauty) | 111 comments No, the hardback is 978-0500239315 and this softback is 9780500293034. The covers also look very different. When I first discovered the book I didn't even realise they were the same title!

Here is the publishers website:

lethe | 14848 comments The book shown on the publisher's site might just as well be a hardcover with dustjacket as a paperback in my view (and the "see inside" is also of the hardcover), but since you have the actual book and most sites list this ISBN as a paperback, I have changed the format.

ETA I missed the 'specifications' link. The publisher also lists it as a paperback, so all is well :)
