There are many more differences between the two books

Your book on bookshare has 316 pages. The other one
only has 156 pages, so something is wrong. Good to
Great on Amazon has 300 pages.

It sounds as if your book should replace the other one
in the collection, but that your title should be Good
to Great--and, perhaps, have the subtitle--at least it
does on Amazon. I see Jim Pardee submitted the first
one; maybe he can explain.
