Default Why are number of pages inconsistent?

I'm just confused as to why this book's website says the book has 768 pages when the "actual pages is 734? So all the websites that sells this book says the book has 768 pages.
But the book has only 734 pages.

I'm not crying fraud on the author's part but thinking the book maybe missing pages?

Whats the facts? Please help.

The first 34 pages of the book are numbered with roman numerals, for the introduction, table of contents, and so on. The chapter 1 starts over on page 1. Add all of those up, plus any blanks at the end and you'll end up at the actual count of 768. Hope this helps.

I tech edited this title cover to cover, twice.
I can assure you, the book isn't missing anything.

Well, I bought the book from buy.com which I considered one of the most horrible place to buy anything and so I wasn't sure the book was accurate.

But I'm sure it's accurate, if I find anything out of the ordinary I'll let you guys know.

Thanks for the input.
