Here's a couple minor bugs I didn't find in the published errata:

Page 138: {0:C} is listed twice in the table, but with different descriptions.

Page 145: Extra space: "You'll have to use the Get-Content and Set-Content cm dlets instead."

Also:

Page 140: Not a bug but: It would be interesting to get an "Author's note" discussing the "2>&1" operator and any internal conversations regarding it. Obviously, a choice was made to provide a syntax suggestive of other shell's file descripter table modifiers, but with simpler (and more limited) semantics. The fact that it does the same thing regardless of its location relative to '>' is a very interesting difference.
