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.

The life of Clarence Day, beloved author of Life With Father, Life With Mother, God and My Father, and This Simian World, is revealed for the first time in Clarence Day: An American Writer. Using her father's diaries and family letters, Day's daughter, Wilhelmine Day Blower, creates a lively portrait of her father's Victorian boyhood, escapades at Yale, and naval experiences in the Spanish-American War-until he was struck down with rheumatoid arthritis.Forced to abandon an active life on Wall Street at the age of twenty-five, Day struggled to make a career as a writer and illustrator. His life with his hot-tempered father, energetic mother, and three redheaded brothers is the background to his best-known book, Life With Father, which was later produced as a play and a Hollywood film.Blower also shares with the reader other aspects of her father's life, including his unusual marriage and his contribution to the success of a new magazine called The New Yorker. Clarence Day: An American Writer brilliantly captures the dedication of one of America's favorite authors.
