The more I use the book to evaluate the exercises, the more I am impressed by the attention to detail by the authors. Of course, there will always be opportunities to explain things in more detail for diverse audiences but I have to confess that most of the discrepancies I am capturing below may be due to "operator error!" :)
I will append editorial oversights below as I dutifully step through each chapter [be warned: this is not my day job :)]
Figure 1-7 does not match Table 1-1
Example 3-5 assumes that the on-board LED (pin #13) is used in Figure 3-10
Example 3-4 invokes "botbook_gpio.py" which failed compilation in my IDLE 3 environment (I corrected the print statements) at line 25, column 20 for the "wa" dual attribute. Apparently one attribute is allowed in my configuration. Not knowing enough about the low level details, I changed the setting to a single attribute but ran into "timeout" problems with the pulseInHigh(echoPin) method. Perhaps an example of the "operator error" I alluded to earlier.
