if ( eregi("979", $this->isbn13) )

needs to be changed; my suggestion is:

if ( preg_match("/^979.*?/", $this->isbn13) )

otherwise it finds '979' anywhere in an isbn; e.g. throws an error if the isbn is a valid '9780393979213'

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try to update the script soon. Sorry I haven't been paying much attention to it, I don't personally have any real use for it at present. I'll try to pay more attention to the forum here.
