NAME

Net::Amazon::Property::Book - Class for books on amazon.com

SYNOPSIS

  use Net::Amazon;

  # ...

  if($resp->is_success()) {
      for my $prop ($resp->properties) {
          print join("/", $prop->authors()), " ",
                $prop->title(), " ",
                $prop->publisher(), " ",
                $prop->year(), "\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION

Net::Amazon::Property::Book is derived from Net::Amazon::Property and on top of the all-purpose methods the base class provides, it offers specialized accessors for book parameters.

METHODS

authors()

Returns a list of the book's authors. There's also a author() method which just returns the first author.

publisher()

Returns the book's publishing company as a string.

title()

Returns the book's title as a string.

isbn()

Returns the book's ISBN number.

edition()

Returns the book's edition.

ean()

Returns the book's EAN number.

numpages()

Returns the number of pages.

dewey_decimal()

Returns the Dewey decimal number, this is for non-fiction only.

This method is deprecated (2011-10-28) as it does not appear to be returned by Amazon any more.

publication_date()

Returns the publication date.

ReleaseDate()

Returns the release date.

For historical reasons, this method used to return the publication date. However, as of version Net::Amazon 0.44 the release date is returned, and a separate "publication_date()" method is available.

new(xmlref => $xmlref)

Initializes an object by passing a hash of hashes structure containing the XML data returned from the service. Usually, this is just used by Net::Amazon internally to initialize objects for on backcoming data.

Check out Net::Amazon::Property for all-purpose accessors, like year, OurPrice, ListPrice, etc.
