Errors in Learn Better

Ulrich Boser 6

Despite my best efforts, I made some errors while writing my book Learn Better.  In the space below, I’m going to keep a running list of any gaffes or mistakes or needed clarifications. I’ll also send this list to my publisher to make sure that these errors are corrected in future editions.

If you find any additional errors, please email me and I’ll list them here, and again my regrets and apologizes for the mistakes.

On page 107, I incorrectly identified where Joshua Aronson did his graduate school work. He got his PhD from Princeton, not Stanford.

On page 296, I misspelled Giada Di Stefano. It is Giada, not Giadia.

    On this page:
    Need quote after “Learn Better.
    gaffes, not gaffs
    apologies, not apologizes
    PhD or Ph. D., not Phd

    I’m in France currently,heavily engaged, will get the book when I’m back in Oregon in May. Looks super useful!

    I’m finding it hard to get past the errors in this book. I’m only up to the second chapter and haven’t written them all down, but on page 47 it says “what’s why tutoring is so effective” instead of “that’s”. In the same chapter you describe the phrase “just do it” as having one dozen letters- there are eight.
    However, I look forward to reading the rest of the book.

    • Thanks so much, Melissa. It’s quite embarrassing to have such errors, and I’ll be sure to fix them in the next printing. Look forward to hearing what you think of the rest of the book, and thanks again for reaching out.

    Page 54 the sentence “had asked once him to create” should read “had asked him once to create”.

    Page 83, ‘develop’ chapter: one of the sentences reads”it’s hard to hard to hear”. ‘Hard to’ has been repeated twice.

    Page 83: “creating understanding” should read “create understanding”.
