When you enter the ISBN from the Post Books page and it turns green like that, when you click to post the book it should open a screen where you can enter all the information for the book and set it up in the system. Turning green is telling you that the ISBN is a valid ISBN, the system just doesn't have it listed yet.

I looked at the listing ... you may want to find the year of publication off the copyright page and put that in. I know that's somethign that I consider before I order a non-ISBN book. Also, if you can find a cover image (or scan the book yourself) and add the image, that will probably help to get it ordered as well.
