Over 6 million ISBNs and ISBN barcodes are listed. The ISBN format was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISBNs are 10 or 13 digit numbers that uniquely identify a book by its title, publisher, and format. ISBN bar codes are just a bar code display of the ISBN number. ISBNs were introduced in 1970 and were originally 10 digit numbers. In 2007, ISBN numbers changed to 13 digit numbers so the system wouldn't run out of ISBN numbers to assign. The ISBN number is typically found on the back cover of the book along with the ISBN barcode that represents that number. The ISBN number can also typically be found on one of the first few pages of the book where the publisher and copyright information is listed.
Each edition of a book and each format of a book has a different ISBN number. This is very useful when searching for the softcover edition or the hardcover edition of a book. It is also useful for college students searching for the correct edition of a college textbook for their university class.

Inspired by the chance discovery of a long-forgotten album containing letters, journals, maps and photographs from the mid-1960s, a former Marine Corps brat chronicles his family's extended voyage across the Pacific Ocean, from the high deserts of California to the humid jungles of Southeast Asia and beyond. Combining the eye-witness accounts of his mother and father as they describe the early stages of the Vietnam War from opposite shores, together with his own vivid memories of childhood conflicts and casualties, author Dirk Harman has created a realistic and revealing portrait of one American military family being swept along by the great tsunami wave of history."Fathers and sons. Husbands and wives. Baseball, the Marine Corps, Hawaii and Vietnam. In this poignant and affecting memoir, Dirk Harman has orchestrated a chorus of voices to celebrate the delights and sorrows and small acts of daily heroism that make up an American life. It is ultimately true and haunting."-Luis Alberto Urrea, author of THE DEVIL'S HIGHWAY
