Default Good book, FULL of errors. Avoid bars for a while.

I thought I'd take some time and go back to basics just to refresh the foundation as it were. Logically and argument wise I think this is a really good book.

However, as has been noted the errors are:
a) unacceptable
b) rampant throughout all parts of the tome

I always look at errors as the first step of becoming a good programer, because in the end the job is about de-bugging. So the errors are just frustrating but real-world like challenges.

BUT, for the guy who's job depends on getting something done today and unfortunately turned to your book for advice. Well... I wouldn't want to meet that guy in a bar any time soon, because he has a valid axe to grind.
