The first paragraph after code listing 5.34 on book page 111 (PDF page 115) of MEP v10 states:

The http.Get function returns a pointer of type http.Request after it successfully communicates with the server. The http.Request type contains a field named Body which is an interface value of type io.ReadCloser.

Instead of http.Request shouldn't that be http.Response?
