I checked these errors against the code downloaded from the No Starch Website and the downloaded code seems to be error free, (so far).
But it would be very frustrating to a 'newbie' to enter the code from the book due to these errors. I assume from no such comments so far that most people use the downloaded code, which would be my suggestion for complete beginners.
Overall though a very good book which is useful to complete beginners and people with some experience, and if you really want to learn it is good practice to find the coding errors and fix them.
No book can cover everything, but this book certainly covers a lot. If you knew everything in this book you might not be a Jedi of Arduino but you would certainly be very knowledgeable and competent. It certainly helped me launch my YouTube channel for Arduino beginners some years after buying this book, so thanks Mr Boxall, it was an exciting journey! If you're interested in my videos, search for my YouTube name, Ralph S Bacon.
For beginners to the world of Arduino, this is a valuable introduction - and whilst impatience to get something running is always present for 'noobs' to the Arduino world, this book also covers some basics that can be read in bed when the excitement of actually getting a temperature reading onto an LCD display has calmed down a bit. And I would certainly recommend reading those chapters which can be the foundation of really understanding what is going on in Arduinoland.
I can do no more than thoroughly recommend this book. As I said, no single book covers it all but John Boxall has an excellent stab at ensuring all Arduinites (my term for Arduino enthusiasts) get results quickly whilst learning the basics in a well-laid out style.

All was well with getting started with the arduino, until I installed some unrelated software on the laptop (dropbox). At that point the drivers stopped working, and i did everything in my power to sort things out, but nothing worked.
So in desperation I turned to the Arduino workshop, where the explanation on installing Windows drivers was better, and they are now installed correctly and the software is working correctly.
All the Arduino books seem to assume the reader has no prior knowledge of electronics, which as an electrician and an electronics enthusiast, makes me glaze over those parts of the books. But where my knowledge is lacking, is in programming, and I think this book is going to keep my interest as it has much better programming examples to copy out, and many more interesting projects than other books. So other reviewers have said they wouldn't do all the projects, I probably will do more rather than less, so that I can get to grips with the programming in a way that I never have before.
I started off by buying the kindle version and used that for a few months. It was good, but I suspected that there was something lost in the transalation from book to kindle. So I bought the book. There is something about the layout of the book, and the presentation that has encouraged me to reread it, and I am getting much more out of it second time round.
So if I could give this book more than 5 stars I would, but I can't so it'll have to stay at 5 stars.
