(0.0..1.0).each { num ->

Re: Code error in listing 4.1 (range declarations)
I saw this post on this, not in the errata as I supposed it should be:

http://www.manning-sandbox.com/click.jspa?searchID=-1&messageID=63952

but my question then is, how would listing 4.2 then work if the age were something like 36.5

Could you use the switch statement then with containsWithin somehow?
