one of the sites that reported errors said she emailed them the problems and the corrections she made. they never replied or made corrections. I have the book from the library and can recheck it 3 times. Surely in that time I can give it a good look over and try a couple of patterns. All in all, the reviews were bad because of errors. I'm new to sock knitting and can't work my way through mistakes in a book. My own mistakes are hard enough!
