1st e copies do not include the errata. 2nd e copies include the printed errata. 3rd e copies have been corrected & reprinted should be released this week. To be sure you are receiving the corrected version, look at the Copyright page.
Hi Ethan, In effort to explain the situation, the publisher (Chronicle) gave me that information. None of the books I have seen have any edition noted, just the typical printing numbers found near the bottom of the copyright page. I have only seen the 11th printing - The corrected copies should be on shelves within the next few weeks. Since the ISBN will be the same, I am hoping there will be some discernible way to distinguish the corrected copies from the defective ones without having to look on the noted defective pages.
I got a book today from Amazon which I thought was the corrected replacement, but it had a pretty card with it including an errata list. I have to check w the old list to see if they sent me the same book twice or there are more errors after the correction. I was told we would receive the books automatically but I believe you won't unless you contact them.
Due to all the negative reviews, I actually held off ordering this title until after the corrected copies were reprinted - early November, I received a corrected copy with no errata sheet. If you were due to receive a corrected copy I believe Amazon was to notify you, otherwise I think it is safe to finally order....
Is there a way to tell what version one has by looking for a specific mistake. For instance, can someone who knows they have the corrected 3rd print give us a specific measurement in a recipe that we could check? Like, "If in the Hot Milk Cake recipe your book calls for x oz. flour then it is the corrected version."
Is your book the corrected version or not? Looks like there are still some uncorrected copies floating around out there - If you're unsure whether your version requires the errata slip, please refer to page 167. If your version lists "1/4 cup fleur de sel" in the ingredients list, you will need to download the errata sheet.
