##### Corrections

Page 12 - Table 3.4 Move Notation Scheme - Cube Rotations

In the book: "...z2 means rotate the cube 180 clockwise so that the U-face becomes the D-face, and the R-face stays the same."
Correction: "...z2 means rotate the cube 180 clockwise so that the U-face becomes the D-face, and the F-face stays the same."

Simple oversight.

Page 31 - Table 4.5b Adjacent Edge Swap Algorithm

In the book: R U2 R' U' R U' R' 1 U2 1 R U R' U R U2 R'
Correction: R U2 R' U' R U' R' + U2 + R U R' U R U2 R'

The 1's should be replaced with + signs to indicate that the algorithm comes in three parts. First you do the Permute Edges Clockwise algorithm, then a U2, and finally the Permute Edges Counter Cockwise algorithms.

Page 36 - Table 4.8 Swap Adjacent Corners Algorithm

In the book: R' F9 L' F R F' L F R' F' L F R F' L' F
Correction: R' F' L' F R F' L F R' F' L F R F' L' F

F9 should be written as F'

Page 43 - Table 5.1

In the book: 0.00005
Correction: 0.0005

The % of total cross cases that can be solved in 0 moves is 0.0005, or 5*10^-4.

Page 56 - Tables 5.8 and 5.9

The table titles have been switched by mistake. Where it says "Counterclockwise" in the title of Table 5.8 read Clockwise, and vice-versa in Table 5.9

Page 125 - Table 8.3 Both Algorithms

In the book: Corner-Center at Front: (R r) U (R' r') U (R r) (U2 u2) (R' r') (R r)
Correction: Corner-Center at Front: (R r) U (R' r') U (R r) U2 (R' r')

In the book: Corner-Center on Bottom: (R2 r2) U (R2 r2) U (R2 r2) (U2 u2) (R2 r2)
Correction: Corner-Center on Bottom: (R2 r2) U (R2 r2) U (R2 r2) U2 (R2 r2)

Both algorithms are written slightly wrong, please study the corrections carefully to see how they should be written.

Page 126 - Table 8.4 Wing Edge in bottom layer, on the left.

In the book: Move: D F D' (D' d')
Correction: Move: D F D' F' (D' d')

An F' has been omitted in printing.

Page 127 - Table 8.5 Both Algorithms for Centre-Edge piece in the bottom layer, and Right-hand diagram

In the book: Colours on Front Face are Nonmatching: R' F' U F (U' u') (D d)
Correction: Colours on Front Face are Nonmatching: D F D' F' (U' u') (D d)

In the book: Colours on Front Face are Matching: R U' R (U' u') (D d)
Correction: Colours on Front Face are Matching: R' D R (U' u') (D d). Please note the Orange sticker on the D slice should be on the Center-Edge NOT the WIng-Edge

Some typing errors, please study corrections carefully.

Page 132 - Missing Sentence at end of page

In the book: "If you don't know how to solve the 3x3x3, "
Correction: "If you don't know how to solve the 3x3x3, please see the beginner method described in chapter 4 for guidance"

Printing error.

Page 151 - Second algorithm from top (Cube in cube in cube pattern)

In the book: U' L' U' F' R2 B' R F U B2 U B' L U' F U R F
Correction: U' L' U' F' R2 B' R F U B2 U B' L U' F U R F'

Final move should be F' not F.
