Notes on your book.
Note: all page references are based on the pdf number and not that of the number on the printed page.
=============================
Listing (Page 3)

Part I (note to me starts page 10)
Introduction to Ext JS
This title needs to be backspaced it looks like 1 character


Part II (note to me starts page 85)
Ext components
Title listing does not match page 85 title of 'Ext JS Components'
#4. The word 'windows' should be 'Windows'(capitalized) to match up with naming convention of the other areas.
#4 Title 'Panels, TabPanels, and windows' does not match that of the page it's on 'A place for components'

Also if you could review it as it referenced four (4) topics but I'm only counting three (3)

Item 'In Part 2"
Change this title to be consistent with the first listing title 'Part 1' so it reads 'Part 2' and does not read 'In Part 2'
Also, naming from page 3 to this title does not match 'Ext Components' or is it 'Ext JS Components'?

=============================
page 8 Code Conventions
=============================
3rd line funky symbol and indentation prior to the word '...Italics...'

Also would be beneficial to mention by the download section that you are using php as your server language and whatever database as well in the example download.

=============================

1st paragraph 1st sentence just ends it is incomplete.

=============================
page 15
=============================
1st paragraph 2nd line spelling change 'widgeets' to 'widgets'
Also I would reword that sentence as it reads awkwardly

Item 1.1.3
1st line drop the word 'With' so it reads 'Ext JS can help...'

=============================
page 19
=============================
Item Layouts
4th line add the word of to '...level understanding Containers and Layouts...' should read '...level understanding of Containers and Layouts...'

=============================
page 23

Item 1.5.2 Setting up Ext JS for the first time
As a newbee in this I am confused as to why the ext-all-debug.js is included. I thought this was optional.
I would suggest changing it from '...to include at least two required ...' to '...to include two required ...'
I would suggest changing it from '...and at least one CSS File.' to '...and one required CSS file ...'

=============================
page 34
=============================
