Default decimal type book error

On page 9 under decimal type, I think the parenthetical scientific notation to the all 9s string should be +10^38 - 1 as per this Microsoft reference (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187746.aspx).

Default Decimal Data Type

You are correct, This is a typo that was introduced somewhere in the authoring/printing process. The values are correct, it is just the scientific notation that is incorrect. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
