I have just downloaded the current pdf version, making my way through the book. Up to chapter 2 I noticed the following:

p.11 penultimate line: insert 'for' after 'means'
searching are equally diverse, including a user-interface, a means building up a programmatic Query,

p.15 "no op": ?should be hyphenated "no-op"

p.16 and p.18, repetitive phrase, ?rewrite
"magic ... surprisingly simple API"

p.19 "index" to "indexing"
During index you may need to tune

p.32 replace "patent" with "lucene" (as per the code example)
This code instructs Lucene to find the top 10 documents that contain the word patent in a field named
