search engine not listing latest edition of book at top of search results

When performing a search for your "iPhone Missing Manual" title, the search engine returns lists 5 older editions -- and 3 other books -- before showing the latest edition (10th) of iPhone: The Missing Manual.

I almost purchased the 9th edition from you (the title listed at the top of the search) before noticing that it only covered iOS 9.

Scrolled down quite a ways, and saw the 10th edition listed, and purchased that from you.

I suggest you get the search engine tweaked to show more recent editions at the top. I would have been peeved if I'd bought the print + ebook version of an older version of this book, without realizing that there was a newer one out there.

    Hi Jeff,
    Thanks for bringing that to our attention. It is strange that there's no option to sort by any release date past 2015 as well. I'll pass your findings on to the web team to take a look at.

    If you had purchased the wrong one we would have happily taken care of that for you or offered you a full refund as per our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
