    Has anyone actually bought and used this? I'm wondering if it truly is word-for-word identical to the hardcover, US edition. Thanks.

    I bought it then didn't use it. It is however, the full 1600pg brick that the hardcover is.

    I bought it and its basically the same word for word. Some of the page numbers might not correspond to the us version but it wasnt a deal breaker for me.

    I bought the version thats marketed to the south Asian market and it has a big honking do not sell to the US market on the front cover

    I bought a bunch of my books in London last summer. Not Robbins, but a few others. I couldn't believe they were so cheap. Like 30-40% cheaper than US prices. And this was central London.

    Here is an example of the differences I found:
    US version: eukaryotes
    UK version: eucaryotes

    That was about the extent of it. Pages, pictures, everything else the same. I think it goes to show what a scam the US book market is.

    Yes. Exact same. British spellings obviously ("colour")
