Default Book cover and ISBN Misleading..

Help!

I shop at www.amazon.ca and I was looking for "Professional VB.NET 2nd Edition".. The search result gave me 2 books.


--------------------------------------------------
Paperback - 985 pages 2nd edition (April 15, 2002)
Language: English
ISBN: 1861007167
Cover: http://images.amazon.com/images/P/18...5.MZZZZZZZ.jpg
--------------------------------------------------
Paperback - 1024 pages 2nd edition (April 2002)
Language: English
ISBN: 0764544004
Cover: http://images.amazon.com/images/P/07...1.MZZZZZZZ.jpg
--------------------------------------------------

looking at the date of publish, I should get ISBN: 1861007167 .. however, I know that (ISBN: 0764544004) is the newer one right?

That confused me, so I went to www.amazon.com and they only carry (ISBN: 1861007167) but saying it's 1024 pages.

So I also went to www.chapters.indigo.ca, they too only carry (ISBN: 1861007167) but with ISBN: 0764544004's cover and said it's 1024 pages.


Ahh. So which one should I get? Should I go with www.amazon.ca which carries 0764544004 on the safer side? or there's not much a difference.. (wrox just wanna play our mind? :)


thx for reading..
