Table of contents (the full version) didn't compile due to a missing variable on page xvi.
I don't think this was a listed errata.

small review:

I am nearing the end of this book, and it's been great. HFJ covers the basics well, and gives you exercises at the end of the chapter to help ram home the knowledge. I wasn't a big fan of some of the puzzles, and have skipped quite a few (mainly because the narrative was engaging, and I wanted to read more) though I might come back to these. I found the fireside chats in particular quite amusing and informative, variables etc. trash talking each other..classic!

I would definitely recommend it for Java beginners, and would like to give a big thanks to the Authors, for filling my head, and keeping me entertained at the same time.

cheers,
Daniel
