Default Amazon Directory - How?

I came accross http://www.medicine-book.com/ .

It appears to be entirely composed of Amazon material - basic listings, which link to a longer listings including a couple of reviews, and a "Buy From Amazon" button.

All the URLs appear to be static, although I am guessing that maybe they are dynamic and then rewritten somehow.

I tried their Search box, but it didn't work, so I don't know if it is possible to pull up off-topic results.

Also, I am curious as to whether this sort of thing is pulling on-the-fly listings directly from Amazon (so as to update automatically), or if the site owner has to do some kind of search and download.

Anybody know how they did this?
