Listing entries are offset by 1. The Listing at the top of page 71 is 3-7 which is the same as the Listing on page 69 (3-7). This also affects the Listing numberings for 3-8 and 3-9 on pages 75 and 76. Also, the first paragraph on page 71 in the middle of the page refers to Figure 3-9, and there is no Figure 3-9.

2nd paragraph

The text says "The code uses LINQ query syntax ..." This is not correct. The code uses a lambda expression to define a method. While lambda expressions were introduced in the same version of C# as LINQ and they can be used in LINQ queries, among other places, a lambda expression is not itself a LINQ query, nor is it "LINQ query syntax". There is no LINQ query syntax in the code to which the text is referring.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Sorry about that. In one of our revisione we inserted a LINQ query in the sample, than remove it to simplify the sample. The corresponding text was not aligned.
