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.

Amazon Editorial Reviews
My name is George Rice. I come from a middle class New York family, which was dysfunctional. My father who finally left when I was eight years old abused me. He did not pay child support to my mother so we were forced to move into a housing project in New Rochelle, New York. I lived with fear all the time. I was terrorized.
I was illiterate until the eighth grade. I basically learned how to read through comic books. I could not look in the mirror because I had such low self-esteem. I quit everything I started except drinking. I started drinking when I was fourteen years old and I could not stop drinking. I finally had to make an important decision that changed the course of my life and the lives of my children too. I stopped drinking and went to A. A.
I still did not like myself very much so I went to the stationary store and picked up some round, stick-on dots all the same color. Then I wrote on the bathroom mirror, “You’re a good person, worthy of love and respect” and put one of my dots next to it. I put the dots everywhere: on my T V., truck mirror, bathroom mirror so I could remember that statement. After awhile, I started learning to love and respect myself.
This book came out of the experiences of my life. I believe it will help anyone who has experienced low self-esteem, trauma or hopelessness. The principles that I talk about in this book are those things that have helped me. Everything I say, I have lived.
