Topher Colin (xtophercb) | 2913 comments won this, and it came today, and GR's entry on it is missing page count...

Mapping Humanity: How Modern Genetics Is Changing Criminal Justice, Personalized Medicine, and Our Identities (paperback edition)

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

amazon's entry for it is also missing page counts so went to worldcat...
https://www.worldcat.org/title/mappin...

ISBN: 9781950665082

Page Count: 321 pages (i would have called it 336, based on what's actually in my copy, and how other books have counted blanks, unnumbered title pages etc, but sure, 321 if that's the official worldcat number).

Elvenn | 2713 comments I've added the pages as 321, which was also what Worldcat had listed.

Goodreads counts all content in the end of the book when adding the number of pages (even acknowledgments, indexes, notes, etc.), the exception being the advertisements and preview chapters (and the blank pages after the text, but those aren't content). It's better explained here.

So, if you believe the number of pages should be higher than 321, let me know and I'll change it.

Topher Colin (xtophercb) | 2913 comments with that explaination of what's counted, 321 is accurate! thanks for the extra info link, it's helpful.!
