Mistakes in first printing of Nonzero

1. In Appendix 1, the table on p. 341, representing the payoff matrix for the prisoner's dilemma, has a mistake in the upper-right-hand quadrant. The correct payoff is "You: 0 years, Him: 10 years," as in this corrected version of the table.

You may ask yourself: How could the author, having written the text that accompanies the table, not have noticed the glaring discrepancy between text and table while reviewing the book in its various phases of production? The author has asked himself this same question.

2. On p. 286, line 25, the phrase "Galapagos finch" should read "Galapagos woodpecker finch."
