Srikumar Krishna Iyer (physri) | 35 comments ISBN # 978-0-00-838958-1
9780008389581

The following book has been listed with wrong page number.
As per current info the number of pages mentioned is 400, but actually the correct number is 366 only.
I have the paperback edition with me printed exclusively for India (printed for HarperCollins by Thomson Press)

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

No idea why it is mentioned wrongly.

Alex | 2736 comments #1 Done, worldcat agreed on all. Also replaced a low-quality cover with the same cover but better quality from amazon.

#3 Please include ISBN/ASIN in all page count requests, in order to avoid confusion.

Srikumar Krishna Iyer (physri) | 35 comments updated #3 msg with ISBN #


message 6: by Alex (new)

Alex | 2736 comments #3/5 Done, but Amazon has 386, is there anything at all after page 366?


message 7: by Srikumar (new)

Srikumar Krishna Iyer (physri) | 35 comments I am also confused.
The copy I have is a branch new 2019 Indian edition.
Exclusively printed for India.
But I don't know why they have printed this new edition with the same ISBN instead of a new unique one.

In the indian edition, the page numbering stops after 366.

It is followed by one page dedicated to Michael Chichton & 6 blank pages


message 8: by Alex (new)

Alex | 2736 comments #7 Amazon is not very reliable when it comes to page counts, so it's probably just wrong. Did update to 367 to include the page about Crichton.

This book was put up by me and by mistake I wrote 2013 pages but it's 213 pages. Someone else put up another edition with the right amount of pages, but it's not another edition. The book does only exist in one edition and with no ISBN because it's a self published book. Is it possible to for anyone of you to change the pages to 213?

Best regards

Alex | 2736 comments #9 Done. If there aren't multiple editions please don't add extra ones, but ask for the current ones to be modified instead. Queued duplicate for deletion. Is there any publisher mentioned in the book? And is there an image that only includes the actual front cover?

Thank you so much! The other edition is put up by someone else than me and I had not even noticed it until today.
The publisher is called Holmbergs.
I do have a picture of only the front cover, but I am not sure how I can send it to you?
