It's well known among authors, it's incredibly dangerous to look in your book once it's published—you're sure to find some embarassing error as soon as you open it. (Don't get me started about some of the errors in SSL and TLS). In that vein, I recently picked up Matthew Yglesias's, Heads in the Sand: How the Republicans Screw Up Foreign Policy and Foreign Policy Screws Up the Democrats. Yglesias is famous for writing quickly and having numerous typos, homonym mixups, etc. in his posts. Sure enough, I hadn't gotten past page xviii when I discovered he had misspelled the name of his roommate, Kriston Capps, except Yglesias spells it "Krison." It's reasonably interesting otherwise, though.
