Some plugins are used for identifying the book. Some are used for fetching metadata. Results are combined, but unlabeled. You can turn off plugins and repeat the same search to see what comes from what.

Also, sometimes I don't seem to be able to obtain description/reviews, even though they clearly exists on, fe, Amazon (same ISBN, plugin preferences checked).
I've never seen this, but perhaps I haven't noticed. ISBN dominates in a search if entered before the search. Try removing the ISBN, modifying the author or title and you may get better/different results.
