|Long Description||Groomzilla: noun. 1) An ordinary man who, upon betrothal, transforms into a pastry tasting, "Save the Date" card-obsessed know-it-all. 2) A bride's worst nightmare. Maybe you've never seen one yourself, but he's out there. Bridezilla's evil twin: Groomzilla. He's real, all right. He's armed with color swatches and his very own copy of Modern Bride--and he's here to plan your wedding. . . Once upon a time, wedding planning was the bride's project. But if you're recently engaged, then you just might have a Groomzilla on your hands. Craig Bridger was a Groomzilla, and lived to tell the tale. Inside, he'll help you tame your Groomzilla before all hell breaks loose. You'll get groom-tested advice, tactics, scientific* charts and a free set of steak knives*. It's your wedding. Groomzilla can't have it, but maybe he can borrow it* if he behaves. *Not true. *Also, technically, not true. *Don't let him borrow it. "Highly entertaining and bursting with information." --Jenny Lee, author of I Do. I Did. Now What?! "David Sedaris meets Emily Post in Surviving Groomzilla . . .Bridger's insights made me burst a corset." --Lucy Talbot, author of The Bridesmaid's Guerrilla Handbook|

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. Originally this was a 10 digit number known as ISBN-10, but has been replaced with a 13 digit version known as ISBN-13 (aka EAN-13) to better fit in with the industry standard product numbering system.
The ISBN system offers a unique numbering system for books and publications of various types. ISBN offers 9 identification digits for each book or publication and one check digit. ISBN-13 expands the available number set by doubling the available numbers. You might think that the extra three digits would more than double the available numbers but ISBN is limited within the EAN-13 numbering system and will always start with 978 or 979 as the first three digits, leaving only 9 more digits for the actual identification digits and again the last digit is the check digit.
Any ISBN-10 number can be converted to ISBN-13. Any ISBN-13 number that starts with 978 can be converted back to ISBN-10. ISBN-13 numbers that start with 979 cannot be converted to ISBN-10.
The conversion process from ISBN-10 to ISBN-13 is a rather simple one. Start with the first 9 digits of the ISBN-10 number, place 978 in front and calculate the new check digit using the standard EAN check digit calculation.
If you want to calculate the check digit for ISBN-10, that is done using a MOD-11 calculation that is very different than the EAN check digit process.
- Lets start with ISBN-10 number 1-5905-9332-?
- Each digit is multiplied by its position for digits 1-9
- 1x1 + 5x2 + 9x3 + 0x4 + 5x5 + 9x6 + 3x7 + 3x8 + 2x9 = 180
- Now get the remainder 180 mod 11 = 4
- Now return the mod 11 again... 4 mod 11 = 4
- If the results is 10, return the letter X otherwise return the digit.
- For our example, the final number is 1-5905-9332-4
Look at the number above and below the barcode. You will see that except for the last digit in the ISBN number, all of the digits exist in the 13 digit version shown under the barcode right after the 978 and just before the new check digit of 5.
Now you can see how easy it is to convert between ISBN-10 and ISBN-13.
