Don't try to glean the information from the page. Amazon is constantly changing their site and the pages are dynamically generated.

It's expressly for this reason that they've created a product API that you can use to access the product data they host. Googling will find a ton of info for your project.

Here's an older link but it might point you in the right direction.

Cheers.
