In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 149:

The paragraph after the first code snippet on page 149 in section 5.3.4 states that dpkg --show is more or less the same as dpkg --info. Instead of the --show, this should read --status, as in the code snippet.

Feedback

Jagadeesh K. Venugopal: I liked this book because, finally, an author has had the presence of mind to write a book that did not regurgitate Unix commands like 'ls' and 'vi' for the gazillionth time. [...] In summary, raise the quality of your Linux reading a few notches by purchasing this book, and raise the quality of your personal computer usage by installing debian or its derivatives.
