Where do you look to find book dimensions (length, height, etc.)?

I used to be able to see it under "Book Information" once you were looking at a single book, along with publisher, book type, ISBN(s), rating, publication date, etc.  I can go into "Edit book data" and check to see what someone else has already filled in, but it doesn't appear right on the individual book page.

Am I just blind (which is certainly possible)?  I used to find it really helpful to make double-sure you were getting a trade paperback vs. a mass market and vice versa.

I look it up on Amazon.com to get the dimensions.

Its never been anywhere but in the Edit Book Data since I joined. If the same ISBN is issued on the MMP and the trade, you still wouldn't be guaranteed what you were getting because both could be posted to the same ISBN since dimensions don't have to match.
