From an email from Stephen Herman:

I noticed a glaring spelling mistake “Lou Gherig’s disease”
when it should be Gehrig, and at 824 “boiling water breaks the bond between hydrogen and oxygen”- I’m guessing you’re not a chemist, no reason to suspect you are. The hydrogen bonding weakens, but surely not breaking the bonds between H and O.

Anyway, this is NOT a critique but a question- since it is a digital download, why cannot readers submit corrections so the future downloads are improved? Its like crowd sourcing the editorial function, and makes the book text more fluid.

I suppose I could adapt a bug-tracking system. Instead I’m doing the lazy thing: posting errors on this blog, categorized as errata.

Thanks, Steve.
