In chapter 3. Installing Debian the right way on page 101:

Item 3 in section 3.3.4 states: "If the file [.xsession] is present, ./.Xsession is tried."
This should be: "If the file [.xsession] is not present, ./.Xsession is tried."

Discussion

The .Xsession file is an alternative to .xsession, but considered only when the latter is not present.

Feedback

Richard Bejtlich, Tao Security: Prospective TDS readers should understand that this book is unlike any I have read on operating systems. Readers will not have to skip pages on setting up Apache or configuring BIND, thankfully! Instead, TDS covers core system administration subjects to a degree I have not seen elsewhere. [...] Krafft takes readers on an inside tour of the how and why of Debian. Rather than just explaining a technique or tool, the author discusses the overall problem, possible ways to approach it, and Debian's solutions. He presents pros and cons for each, and then demonstrates usage with command line syntax and sample output.
