This is the paperback version of the international, second edition. I live in, and will ship from Alabama. The corners show light backpack wear, and the pages are in excellent condition. See the attached photos. Notice that although the covers are different, the first few pages are identical to those shown in the preview. I can't say what differences, if any, there are in the rest of the book
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
