page 28 paragraph 2 sentence 2
"from State 2, on an input a..."
?????????? should this read as follows??
"from State 2, on an input b..."

page 26 in the state diagram and table of Figure 2.6
the figures 2.7(a) and 2.7(b) appear to conflict with Figure 2.6

a 0 a 1 b 1 c 1 b 0 c 0 d accept--values in figure 2.7(a)
a 0 b 1 c 1 b 1 c 0 d 0 a fail--my reading of Figure 2.6

a 1 b 1 c 0 d 0 a 1 b 1 c fail--values in figure 2.7(b)
a 1 a 1 a 0 b 0 c 1 b 1 c fail--my reading of Figure 2.6

That is, it appears figures 2.7(a,b) were produced from a
table in which the values of STATE A are (A B) instead of
the published (B A).

Is there an addendum to the book or can I just not yet read?
