Chapter 1: "The speed of light is about 3e8 meters per second, which means that data can be propagated around 0.30 cm (about a foot) in a nanosecond. But the bigger the chip, the longer it takes for data to travel through it."

Should be 0.3 m or 30 cm. Small typo, but quite significant difference in the context of explaining how speed of light limits the core size.

Page 32 Listing 2.3. Code is written in C# but the text below pointing to the function states:

"The F# compiler has deduced that
the function must use the same
type for both input and output."

Shouldn't this be changed to "The C# compiler..."?
