A fair bit. If you download the current version of the book online, it comes with an errata. All errata from page 239 (1.0->1.1) through 244 (1.3 -> 2.0) are changes from the first edition to the second.

It was developed as a series of lecture notes for an undergraduate course I taught at GMU. The chapters are designed to be printable separately if necessary. As it's lecture notes, the topics are short and light on examples and theory. It's best when complementing other texts. > > > > Sean Luke > > George Mason University > > > > -- > The Singularity is near.
