Table 1-3 is a repetition of Table 1-2

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct, this is for reader convenience since the earlier presentation is 6 pages away. Can reword the introductory sentence above it as follows: "Table 1-3 (repeated from Table 1-2, earlier, for convenience) ..."

2nd paragraph

Instead of "same result by random chance" - shouldn't it say same result or more extreme - or something like that?

Note from the Author or Editor:
Confirmed, but on page 96, not 112, 2nd para in the "P-Value" subsection of chapter 3, please replace "...achieve the same result by random chance..." with "... achieve a result as extreme as this, or more extreme, by random chance..."
