OK OK little mistake here. When you say : $book => $isbn that means that BOOK has inside of it ISBN and ISBN has inside of it the book title.

So basically you are trying to echo two times the same information :=)

so switch your declaration to this:

<?php foreach($books as $isbn => $book) { ?>

which reflects your structure $books["978-0743261690"] = "Gilgamesh";

And then:

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