A significant omission was accidentally made in the publication
of this book, which I very much regret. The interesting figure
on the cover was provided by Ray Bornert II, but my acknowledgment
of his contribution was lost in the shuffle. He should have
been listed in the acknowledgments on page xiii.
You can see his figures on his web site at the following
Page 25 - The peptide sequences at the top of page 25 are
inconsistent. The correct figure is provided below. Khue Truong
receives the first Starbucks gift card.
Page 26 - The function used for the volume of a sphere is
incorrect. The actual volume is 16 mL. Thanks to Christiana
Page 157 - The answers to problems 4 and 5 are switched. Thanks to Robert Koble.
Page 158 - The correct sequence is AQMFX. Colleen Knoth is
having coffee, too!
