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
Savage is a poetry collection that is different and unique. It is one that views events from a perspective of the left and is not politically correct. It uses both free and rhymed verse on a wide variety of subjects, employing many different forms. This collection deals with our world of extremes: of war and peace, wealth and poverty, the powerful and the powerless, religious fanaticisms, hypocrisies and humor.
Many believe poetry should only concern itself with the wonders of the natural world, and the most noble aspects of human nature, but ignore the worst of the human condition.
Poetry, which deals with social, political, and historical matters, crimes and inequities, is often denigrated and dismissed as “social protest,” deemed to be of little value, and not worthy of serious interest or consideration.
Pre-emptive wars, genocide, terrorism, racism, global warming, worldwide extinctions, economic bondage, toxic waste, and the threat of nuclear annihilation, are all great concerns which thoughtful people, and poetry, must address. It is within the power of poetry to inspire, even infuriate, as well as enlighten. Savage aspires to do just that.
