Chapter 2, Page 22. Language

You can use the Sitecode.Data.Items.CustomItem abstract class as a base class for your classes
that represent different types of items
. For more information about this approach, see Chapter 3.
Many solutions benefit from the implementation of .NET classes to represent various types of Sitecore
items. You can use the Sitecore.Data.Items.CustomItemBase class as a base class for your classes
that represent different types of items.

1. What is the difference between the first and the fourth sentences here other than the name of the class and the fact that the first sentence contains a misprint "Sitecode.Data" instead of "Sitecore.Data"?
2. Why of the two almost duplicate sentences the first one indicates that the class is abstract but the fourth sentence does not, though CustomItemBase is also abstract?

Having read it several times I just can't get the meaning of the whole paragraph.

Sorry, but I can't help but say that I am really struggling with the language of the book. The book that in all other aspects is great. But maybe it is only me and simply because I am not a native speaker? I'd like to ask someone with a better sense of English to read several chapters and let me know if anybody shares my feeling that the editor could do a better job.

But again, content is brilliant, just can't read it [:)].

The two sentences mean the same thing. I assume John is a father and has learned that repetition is an important part of teaching. [8D]
