Chapter 17: Principles and pathology of orthodox statistics
 p. 512, first full paragraph: ``...it seems obvious that, at least
for large , this has made things worse instead of better.'' I believe
``large'' should be ``small.''
 p. 513, footnote 2: ``indavertently'' should be
``inadvertently.''
 p. 518, first line after (17.27), and last line on page:
``Schwartz'' should be ``Schwarz.''
 p. 519, eqn. (17.30): (in the denominator) should be .
 p. 519, eqn. (17.32): should be
.
 p. 520, third full paragraph, start of third line:
``Schwartz'' should be ``Schwarz.''
 p. 530, eqn. (17.65): ``'' should be ``''.
 p. 538, eqn. (17.93):
should be
.
 p. 541, eqn. (17.107): As far as I can tell, this equation is wrong.
The final term of the rightmost expression should be
instead of
.
 p. 543, first line after (17.118):
``Schwartz'' should be ``Schwarz.''
 p. 544, eqn. (17.125): subscripts of and are missing from the
summation symbol ; the factor for the middle expression should
be ; and the rightmost expression should be
.
 p. 544, eqn. (17.126):
should be
.
 p. 545, eqn. (17.128): The denominator needs to be squaredthat is,
 p. 545, eqn. (17.129): this should read
 p. 545, eqn. (17.130): should be .
 p. 546, eqn. (17.135): , here and in the rest of the section,
should be . Alternatively, in (17.132) should be replaced
with .
 p. 546, eqn. (17.136): I think the series should be
, as provides only a constant term, which is
subsumed by the trend. Likewise, in (17.137), replace ``''
with ``''.
 p. 548, middle of page: `` is the matrix of model
functions.'' We called this matrix on the previous two pages.
 p. 549, eqn. (17.164): This is redundant; it just repeats eqn. (17.161), which appeared half a page earlier.
 p. 551, third full paragraph, thirdtolast line: ``student''
should be ``Student.''
