Hi Rob. First, of course I'm glad that you found so much to like in the other four recent Wrox books and they're helpful in your education and career. I'll pass along that praise to everyone involved.
I've been watching the book forum (Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 and Databases) and continue to encourage the author on responding there. Once he verifies that some of the things you and the other couple of readers have posted there are actually errors, I'll look into why the errors made it into the book, which step of the process on this book didn't hold up as it should. We took a lot of effort on this book to get it right, so I'll be as disappointed as anyone if the multiple rounds of tech editing, multiple reviews by the authors, didn't result in a great book.

As far as who to write to, the buck stops here with me. Ultimately I take responsibility for whether or not my books live up to your expectations and I'm sorry this one didn't.
