After the example of page 312, explanations are given. But I really don't understand the following sentences:
If the close() method does throw an exception, Java looks for more catch blocks. There aren't any, so the main method throws that new exception. Regardless, the exception on line 28 is handled.

I think the exception throwed by the close() method is caught by the catch block on lines 23-24. Hence, in my point of view, it's not correct to say
... Java looks for more catch blocks. There aren't any, ...

Am I misunderstanding something here (maybe my poor english knowledges aren't helping me...)?

Thank you for your help!

The book looks wrong. Line 23 does catch that exception.

I'll add this to the errata in a couple days
