Default Errors in the Palmer How to Brew Book?

I have a 2006 version of the book. Am I missing something, or are there lots of errors in the book? Right now I'm looking at Pg. 193 & 194, dealing with Typical Malt Yields. Figures referred to on Page 194 are not listed on Page 193. I also assume that rather than "caramel 15" and "caramel 75" he actually meant crystal 15 and crystal 75..?? It's all very confusing since the numbers don't seem to add up.

EDIT: Sorry about the duplicate posts. The HBT server is having a hard time tonight..

I don't have the book with me right now so I can't check p193-194, but caramel and crystal are broadly interchangeable names. American maltsers seem to prefer caramel and British crystal, but both are produced in the same way.

On page 124 he states that caramel and crystal malts are the same thing.
