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.
