Actually, the problem is due to the fact that the book has two different ISBNs!!!
If you have the book, have a look to the ISBN on the rear dustjacket, in the barcode. This is 0-9744681-5-0, which is the correct one (if you search on Amazon.com, or at Barnes & Noble with this number, you can find Mr. Ben's biography of Vernon).
However, if you OPEN
the book and check the cataloguing information (fourth page), the ISBN is recorded as 0-9780675-0-9.
I am intrigued on how this may have happened: a typo? The difference between the two ISBNs is substantial, in my opinion. The problem may be, however, somewhere else: the "5-0" ISBN (dustjacket) seems to be somewhat related to an AA's title, while the "0-9" one doesn't seem to match any book in existence...
I'm puzzled and amused... :eek:
