p. 4, Figure 1-2
One stray square in Range
p. 12, Example 2
Let p(n) be the highest power of 2 that divides n. That is, p(n) is the largest k
...
try every value of 2^k under n
should be:
Let p(n) be the largest k
...
try every value of 2^k less than or equal to n
p. 32, middle
return n*(n+1)/2
should be:
return n*(n+1)//2
p. 66, Figure 4.2:
The numbers and displacements should be 1, 1/2, 1/3, ...
where the length of a brick is 2. See

p. 112, #10, last paragraph:
raw_input
should be:
input
p. 113, #12 and solution:
isMersenne
should be:
isMersennePrime
p. 157, middle:
"but tuples have no methods at all"
That was true in Python 2. In Python 3 a tuple has methods count and index.
p. 163, paragraph before Example 4:
use print >>f, s
should be:
use print(s, file=f)
p. 164, Example 5:
print >>f, ' {0:4d} {1:5.2f} {2:7.2f}'.format(qty, price, amt)
should be:
print(' {0:4d} {1:5.2f} {2:7.2f}'.format(qty, price, amt), file=f)
p. 253, Question 4:
venn diagram
should be:

p. 46 Example 1:
return math.sqrt((x2-x1)*(x2-x1) + (y2-y1)*(y2-y1)
should be:
return math.sqrt((x2-x1)*(x2-x1) + (y2-y1)*(y2-y1))
p. 53 Example 4:
>>> msg = 'You can't change me!'
>>> msg
'You can't change me!'
