Figure 2-2

Figure 2-2 shows only one scenario (that is one circle chasing one diamond). The paragraph following it refers to "the scenario on the left" (wherein the prey is sitting still), and "the scenario on the right" (in which the prey is moving along some arbitrary path over time). Figure 2-2 only shows the first scenario. Correct figure can be found here - http://examples.oreilly.com/9780596005559/aigd_0202.gif

Example 8-4

The first parameter to fi_GetData() needs closing quotation marks. In other words, intelligence[kTroll]=fi_GetData("Troll Settings.txt, "INTELLIGENCE"); strength[kTroll]=fi_GetData("Troll Settings.txt, "STRENGTH"); speed[kTroll]=fi_GetData("Troll Settings.txt, "SPEED"); should be: intelligence[kTroll]=fi_GetData("Troll Settings.txt", "INTELLIGENCE"); strength[kTroll]=fi_GetData("Troll Settings.txt", "STRENGTH"); speed[kTroll]=fi_GetData("Troll Settings.txt", "SPEED");

The text say "In Figure 13-1, C causes D and D causes E and F, but A and B cause C." However, there are no states named A to F in 13-1. Figure 13-1 looks like this (more or less, as ASCII-images): Trapped (T)
