Hi,

On page 61, first row:

Probably it should be:

Because in the first sentence of Casting Primitive Values topic (page 60) says that “We can fix the examples in the previous section by casting the results to a smaller data type”. In the previous section the example is:

I sent those minor typos via email some days ago But Jeanne Boyarsky said that If I can post them in the forum, that would be a bit easier for her. Therefore I registered in the forum for posting my notes here

It's not only easier for her. You are posting in a public forum, so anybody can see/discuss the possible errata items when it's needed. And if Jeanne has a holiday for example, you'll probably get much faster some feedback about the issue than when you send her an e-mail, because your post will be noticed by a whole Java community. So nothing but benefits!

Even without that. Roel lives a number of time zones ahead of me and often sees posts before I do.

And sometimes I even take a huge risk answering them
