The text states that "There are several shortcuts that can be used when finding records" but all of those are labelled as "find([id])" The syntax should vary from shortcut to shortcut.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The second shortcut name should be changed from find([id]) to find(:first, *options) The third shortcut name should be changed from find([id]) to find(:all, *options)

Diagram at the top

Figure 1-3 at the top of page 55 in the printed book shows the user_roles table with users_id and users_name as the columns. They should be user_id and role_id.

Note from the Author or Editor:
This is correct. The diagram is incorrect and should show the columns 'user_id' and 'role_id' in the users_roles table.
