Page 79, the example script in the center of the page:

if (num = 0)...
if (num = 1)...
if (num = 2)...
if (num = 3)...
if (num = 4)...

The above is syntactically incorrect, the code will not work.

The script should read:

if (num == 0)...
if (num == 1)...
if (num == 2)...
if (num == 3)...
if (num == 4)...
