...but here are still some almost trivial errors in the math of chapter 
2, as I reported on 23 Oct last year:

On page 6, chapter 2 - theoretical limits, Tom states:

    n_1 = n_0 + r n_0 = (r + 1) ^ {n_0}

but this must read

    n_1 = n_0 + r n_0 = (r + 1) * n_0

Three lines beneath that we find

    n_t = n_{t-1} + r n_{t-1} = (r + 1) ^ {t n_0} = (r + 1) ^ {t i}

which must be

    n_t = n_{t-1} + r n_{t-1} = (r + 1) ^ t * n_0 = (r + 1) ^ t * i

where I assume you're familiar with LaTeX.
