The "international version" is currently $100 cheaper than the non-international version, so I started comparing and this is what I found out:

SAME:
- Table of Contents
- student companion web site
- instructor resources (overhead transparencies, CD-ROM; matching ISBN's)

^ the similarities were enough for me to feel comfortable purchasing the book despite the differences outlined below.

DIFFERENT:
- ISBN's
- listed publisher (WH Freeman for non-international, WH Freeman and Palgrave Macmillan for international)
- cover (International version is labeled as such and indicated further by a light gray border, and a note on cover that says, "This edition is for use outside the USA and Canada")
- student companion book (different ISBN's, different # of pages claimed)

QUESTIONABLE:
- # of pages -- the Amazon listing and publisher website for the International version both claim that the book has 1,026 pages. That is not exactly true. The international version here in front of me has 1,098 pages of text devoted to the content outlined by the Table of Contents. To be fair, they might have omitted from that count all pages that pertain to end-of-chapter problems (mathematically that would make sense); but they have also omitted a page count for introductory text (32 pages), Appendix A (30 pages of problem answers), Appendix B (48 page index), blank (8 pages), and the back inside cover is also printed with tables for Acidity Constants and Standard Bond Lengths. All of this to say that you cannot make a valid comparison based on claimed page numbers alone. The Amazon listing and publisher website for the non-international version claims 1,120 pages. Draw your own conclusions.

Bought from a third party and was the International Edition. Professor specified that we needed US edition and so I returned this one, then went to Chegg and bought the previous US edition.

Is a nice book that is fairly clear, but the diagrams are far more helpful than the text.
