<?php echo $book[$isbn];?>
this line above is where the issue is from, what you are trying to do is take the string $book, and then treating as an array, it has to be like

<?php echo $books[$isbn];?>

or else you could even easily do the 2 lines you put,  in one line like

<?php echo $book." (".$isbn.")"; ?>
