As you can see, there are 3 different versions of the cover for this book, can the people who bought it from amazon confirm which one amazon sells?

I don't know for sure, but a while back I got into a long argument with Amazon because I'd ordered a book for my wife's birthday which was repeatedly delayed because they didn't have any stock. When I looked on the site, they were advertising the same book in an ever-so-slightly different edition as in stock for immediate dispatch. They wouldn't send me the alternate edition without me cancelling the original order and re-ordering the alternate because as far as they were concerned, the 2 editions were completely different items - different ISBNs - so my bet would be that the cover picture you'll be sent will be the one shown on the page where you click "add to basket" - any other cover would be a different book as far as their system is concerned and they wouldn't/couldn't send you that any more than thy might send you a CD when you order a book.
