there is IMO a subtle typo on the page 25 (below the Figure 1.19)

The filter to get the variable smallerNumbers has the condition el >= 40, i.e. the results are bigger numbers - the smaller once are discarded.
Either the variable name or the filter condition should be adjusted. Caution, the change must be done consistently also in the Fig. 1.19.

Otherwise is Ch1 excelent introduction!

Re: p25 - smallerNumbers are actually biggerNumbers
Well, how can you trust a book written by a person who doesn't know the difference between smaller and bigger???

Thanks for catching this! I'll get the edit in for the next update.
