Chapter 2, page 47

The paragraph defining the units of force, mass, length and power is missing.

"Force (F) is defined as Newton-meters (Nm), mass (m) is in kilograms (kg), Length units are in meters and Power (P) is measured in Watts. Rotational velocity is measured in radians per second (rad/s), with 2pi radians being one full rotation."

The next four images have the NPN and PNP transistors swapped and misoriented. I, and all my editors must have been asleep that day...

Chapter 4, page 132, figure 4-30

This schematic has an extra connection that doesn't belong, this is what it should look like:

Chapter 7, page 191, Figure 7-1

This figure is incorrect, it should look like:

Chapter 7, page 191, Figure 7-2

This figure is incorrect, it should look like:

Chapter 7, page 193, Figure 7-3

This figure is also incorrect, it should be:

Chapter 7, page 193, Figure 7-4

And so too is this figure wrong, it should be:

Chapter 7, page 200, Figure 7-9

This schematic SHOULD be:

Chapter 7, page 206, line 14

is "any easy enough task", should be "an easy enough task"

Chapter 7, page 213, line 13

is "with a inductance specification", should be "with inductance specification"

Chapter 7, page 213, bottom of page formula

The units for this formula are in f:Hertz, L:Henries, R: Ohms.

Chapter 8, page 260, line 11

is "when the magnetic file is removed.", should be "when the magnetic field is removed."

Chapter 8, page 260, line 22

is "On other caveat", should be "One other caveat"

Chapter 8, page 268, line 29

is "500 pulses per second", should be "500 pulses per revolution"

Chapter 8, page 283, Figure 8.59

This figure is incorrect, it should look like:

Chapter 10, page 318:

The reference to figure 10-17 should be to figure 10-21.

Chapter 10, page 322, line 8

is "is left producing", should be "is left protruding"

Chapter 10, page 323, line 15

is "bushings, pulleys, and printers are...", should be "those starting out as bushings, pulleys, and printers are..."

Chapter 10, page 330, Figure 10.33 and 10.34

These images should be swapped

Chapter 11, page 336, line 2

is "in the amount of axial stress", should be "in the amount of radial stress"

Chapter 11, page 336, line 5

is "and elbow is axial stress", should be "and elbow is radial stress"

Chapter 11, page 336, line 11

is "To reduce axial stress", should be "To reduce radial stress"

Chapter 11, Figure 11-3

This figure is wrong, it should look like:
