    What you said was that it should have been destroyed. And what actually does happen over here is people attempting just that -- pulling all copies with the offending title, content, whatever and destroying them. Leaving only the newer, cleaner versions.

    We're dealing with both language and culture differences obviously. But it's all too common here for that term to be quite literal where books are concerned.

    Developmental Biology, 8th edition, by Scott F. Gilbert.

    Strictly for work, because I really need some comprehensive reference covering development. I was lucky to need that kind of book right as it was about to be re-edited in an updated version!

    It's a cool read and nicely presented.
