I’m grateful for readers who have pointed out errors in the book. They will be corrected in future print runs and on the e-version.


Page 4: ‘Strawberry Fields’ should read ‘Strawberry Road’.

Page 25: ‘702 MHz and 873 MHz’ should read  ‘702 KHz and 873 KHz’.

Page 33: ‘where they were loaded onto square-rigged clippers capable of reaching Great Britain via the Suez Canal in 72 days.’  [Thanks to reader Bill for pointing out that Clippers did not sail via the Suez Canal, only steamships.]

Page 276: ‘Labor’s Jim Short’ should read ‘The Coalition’s Jim Short.’
