2nd para

In the description of $myDouble, the stated value 9 in parentheses, i.e. "(53-bit, 9 bits of precision)", is probably wrong.

The description, "PowerShell wraps around because the first number in the range is positive, and the second number in the range is negative", does not match up with the example.

-shl and -shr entries

Both of these are wrong in the description:

-shl Binary shift left:
$value -slh $count

should be:
$value -shl $count

-shr Binary shift right:
$value -slr $count

should be:
$value -shr $count

End of Table 1-8

Table 1-8 lists "other" operators. The invoke/call operator, &, is missing from this table and from the index. It is listed on page 53 under the topic "Running Commands", but I believe it should be in the table of operators as well as the symbol section of the index. Actually, I guess the dot operator described on page 54 should also be in the table of operators. This operator is located in the index.

switch options ( expression )

foreach Statement

In the line
:loop_label foreach (variable in expression)
the word "in" should be in regular roman (not italic) font.

8th row

"Dismount" is listed as a synonym for "dismount". "Unmount" would be useful here, and may have been what was intended.
