You said on page 46, in chapter 5: "It is ike the raw_input() function has print built right in. We will use that shortcut from now on."
Then, on the very next page, in listing 5.3:
print "Type in a temperature in Fahrenheit: ",
fahrenheit = float(raw_input())

if you had used the shortcut, it would've been:
fahrenheit = float(raw_input("Type in a temperature in Fahrenheit: "))
It's just kind of ridiculous that you contradict your own statement on the very next page!
Please put that in the Erreta, thank you.
