Errata Update 3

While recording the Audio Book, Sebastian, my producer, and I found a few more typos and errors.
Some of the minor ones, like missing “a”s, “the”s and such are not reported here.
But there were a few errors that would make a difference in your reading or understanding.
Most importantly, I wanted to correct the name of the wonderful man who first hired me at MarketWatch.com –
Chris Pummer. He taught me so much!
