One solution is https://github.com/jlouis/eministat
But one has to weigh the most efficient solution against two things:
* Which solution is the most readable and elegant. It is more likely to be
* How many ISBN numbers per second are we looking at?
Modern computers are unfairly quick at computation once data are on the CPU
itself. So unless you have a very large count of ISBN numbers to verify, I
would perhaps spend my time elsewhere in the code base. Your systems
overall efficiency is likely to suffer from other factors than a single
