I caught that one when I was preparing the chart for this year. I think that James should already have the correction on the handbook web site, if not it should be there shortly.
Once again, I noticed something... This impresses me. Again, I'm not trying to rub anyone's nose in it, but a couple of things occur to me:
- The Observer's Handbook is not perfect. I had this notion it was flawless. But there are chinks in the armour. It's damn fine armour! And, well, that's just the way it goes, I guess. A work of this magnitude, with many contributors, with imposing deadlines (I'm sure), mistakes are bound to creep in.
- Don't trust everything (anything?) you read.
- I'm not a slouch. I'm finding or noticing errors. And I cross-check things to see if I'm doing something wrong. I forget what that's called, where you don't lose yourself in some text, but that you're thinking about the text as your read it, questioning, evaluating.
