Hi , Joseph Albahari and Ben Albahari

Thank for your book , C# 7.0 Pocket Reference

I read your book in safari online book , I saw a problem in this book.
It's related with Pre-decrement because you used to Post-increment for it , I think
it is a small mistake in this book .
If you'll see this error in safari online book chapter 01 you can search Post-increment in this book and you'll see Post-increment for ( -- ) in a Unary table.

I like your book and I read c# 6 (Full) before c# 7 ( Pocket ) . It is best book for learning c# .
I'll wait for your answer
thanks a lot.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct. On the table on page 50, right of --, "post-increment" should read "pre-decrement".

First paragraph

Link for sample files is broken.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The last sentence in the first paragraph should read:

To download the samples, click the Samples tab in LINQPad and click “Download more samples.”

Under operator table in page 50 line 5

This could be printing mistake. It says --x is for "Post-increment". This is for pre-decrement.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct. Note that this has been reported in another errata.

last line

it says
case bool b when b == true // Fires when b is true

correct is
case bool b when b == true: // Fires when b is true

so you are missing the colon after "true".

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct - there should indeed be a colon after the word 'true'.

Under "Object Member Listing"

One of the members of Object class listed is "protected override void Finalize();", however as Object itself has no base class, there's nowhere for it to override any base method. Also in Microsoft says "the Object class provides no implementation for the Finalize method", therefore I think the "override" modifier is improper here, but should be replaced with "abstract".

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct. Replace override with virtual, so that that reads:

protected virtual void Finalize();

Operator Table (location 903 of 4677 on Kindle)

More like a question: Shouldn't the null-coalesing operator (??) also be includet in the operator precedence table? Reason for asking is because i + j ?? 0 is yields a different result than i + (j ?? 0) because the ??-operator has lower precedence than the add-operator.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Yes, this should be in the table, under the conditional Or. It's been added for the next edition.
