No matter how carefully we check, bugs can sneak into a 550 page book. Here are the ones we've discovered.
We're getting corrections into the print and e-book versions as quickly as we can, but if you've got an earlier release, you may have to make necessary adjustments yourself.
Find any others? and we'll fix them.
- (minor) Page 295 header says Chapter 4. It should be Chapter 11, just like the pages surrounding it. (30 July 2014, thanks JH for spotting)
- (wrong media) The fifth sound file in Chapter 2 is mistakenly called "Sound 1.5". Sound 1.5 is a recording of a steady tone. The proper file is "Sound 2.5", of course, which demonstrates aliasing on music and dialog. You can access it here. (6 August 2014, jr)
- (user instructions) The preface describes access to online media as "log in using a password you'll find buried in these pages". Reader HH was concerned he'd have to read through every page to find hidden passwords. He suggests something more accurate and less scary, like "have your book handy: you'll be directed where to find the passwords you'll need". That's true, and a good change. (21 August 2014)
