The calculation of the percentage error due to the use of the World Mercator projection in Listing 8.8 is likely not what you intended. Right now the code has one calculating the "error" of the National Atlas Equal Area projection using the World Mercator projection as the base.

Ah yes you are right. Not sure what we were thinking there. It will be fixed in the next release of this chapter.
