Right before section 5.2.1, there is:

> In this listing, we have only supplied a “flex grow”, leaving the other two to their default values (“0” and “0%” respectively).

i.e. saying flex-shrink's default value is 0.

Then in the Tip right before section 5.2.3, there is:

> The shorthand assigns useful default values for any of the three which you omit: flex-grow of 1, flex-shrink of 1, and a flex-basis of 0%.

A bit of research confirms that it's default value is 1.

*edit* That's a good catch. The Tip just before 5.2.3 is correct.
