The book is pretty cool, I took the advise of another reviewer and had it spiral bound - worth the money I think. Also I found a website with the corrections - hope these help. Cheers

Corrections from the book:

Corrections

Page 31 - Table 4.5b Adjacent Edge Swap Algorithm
In the book: R U2 R' U' R U' R' 1 U2 1 R U R' U R U2 R'
Correction: R U2 R' U' R U' R' + U2 + R U R' U R U2 R'
The 1's should be replaced with + signs to indicate that the algorithm comes in three parts. First you do the Permute Edges Clockwise algorithm, then a U2, and finally the Permute Edges Counter Cockwise algorithms.

* * *
Page 36 - Table 4.8 Swap Adjacent Corners Algorithm
In the book: R' F9 L' F R F' L F R' F' L F R F' L' F
Correction: R' F' L' F R F' L F R' F' L F R F' L' F
F9 should be written as F'

* * *
Page 43 - Table 5.1
In the book: 0.00005
Correction: 0.0005
The % of total cross cases that can be solved in 0 moves is 0.0005, or 5*10^-4.

* * *
Page 56 - Tables 5.8 and 5.9
The table titles have been switched by mistake. Where it says "Counterclockwise" in the title of Table 5.8 read Clockwise, and vice-versa in Table 5.9

* * *
Page 125 - Table 8.3 Both Algorithms
In the book: Corner-Center at Front: (R r) U (R' r') U (R r) (U2 u2) (R' r') (R r)
Correction: Corner-Center at Front: (R r) U (R' r') U (R r) U2 (R' r')
In the book: Corner-Center on Bottom: (R2 r2) U (R2 r2) U (R2 r2) (U2 u2) (R2 r2)
Correction: Corner-Center on Bottom: (R2 r2) U (R2 r2) U (R2 r2) U2 (R2 r2)
Both algorithms are written slightly wrong, please study the corrections carefully to see how they should be written.

Loved the book, easy to follow and simple to understand.
I completed the cube within 6 days of owning, having no experience what so ever and was consistently completing the cube within 3 minutes in my 10th day.
The book provides 3 different sets of instructions for the 3x3x3 cube, each with different levels of difficulty and speed. It also provides solutions to the 2x2x2 cube and the 4x4x4 and 5x5x5. Absolutely BRILLIANT ! ! !

Written by my 10-year-old.
