Typo

Thanks. Got it.

I am working forwards through the chapters reviewing them, starting at page 205. I have reached page 130 (which you will soon hit).

I can create an update for you to work from, later today. In places this update will have a poor alignment between text and margin figures (which might even toverlay table sin places).

I downloaded a copy of the document, highlighted and added comments to it, then uploaded it to Dropbox, which you can see at the following link:

My first comment is on page 27 and my last is on page 113.

Let me get through a little more of the material before I venture any editorial comments.


Page 25. "affect reading performance&emdash" Incorrect character escaping?

Feel free to make comments on the material. It's a whirlwind tour intended to give a basic understanding and motivate an interest in learning more.

Page 22. "Early researchers, investigating human behavior, found that people do not always respond ways that are consistent with the mathematically optimal models of behavior that had been created."

Should be "respond in ways..."?

I want to reduce the friction of reporting issues. It does not matter to me how they are reported. So I am happy to go with whatever is easiest for you.

Yes, processor should be processors.

Typo

I'm open to whatever. Did you mean for me to just add the typos to this issue as I find them instead of creating a new issue for each one?

One per comment?


I'm a fan, by the way. You've picked an important topic for this book.


On page 8. "Many low-cost processor have a very simple architecture with rel- atively few instructions and parameter passing..."

Processor should be processors?

Mangled sentences

A sentence got moved into the middle of the following sentence. Must have accidentally typed some unusual editing command.

Changed back to:

Few people in today's commercial world have much interaction with those working within the ecosystems that are claimed to be researching their field. The quaint image of researchers toiling away for years before publishing a carefully crafted manuscript is long gone <book Edwards_17>.

Something went wrong here. Apologies. My iPad wouldn't let me copy the text so I'm attaching a screenshot.

Extra word in sentence

On page 7 you wrote "... inevitable that some published papers contain claims about software engineering that turn out to be close roughly correct; coincidences happen."

"close" appears to be an unneeded word.

Yes, fixed. This effect is one of the dangers of repolishing sentences.

On page 6 you wrote "... Air Force officers writing Master’s thesis."

Something's wrong there. Perhaps it should be plural "Master's theses"?
