Note that the first edition had two different printings. As the first printing sold out in Fall of 2003, a second printing was run, in which all the typos I knew of at that point were corrected. To see if you have the new printing of the book, look at page xii. If I say thanks to people who found typos in the first printing, then that book is from the second printing.
Here is the Errata for the first printing. Here is the Errata for the second printing.
