This might be a dumb question but how can you tell how many of a book there are in the system?  Do you just do a search for posted books then count the results?  Can you do a search to see if it is on anyone's wishlist?

You can add the book to your reminder list which will show you how many are in the system.

As for the wishlist, I don't believe there's a way you can find out who has the book on their wishlist unless you check their account.  When you enter the ISBN and check the description there will be a notation that tells you how many people (if any) are wishing. 

Hope that helps!
