Head First Java 2nd Ed. Typo?

n "Head First Java (2nd Edition - Covers Java 5.0)", Chapter 8, page 212, 2/3 of the way down the page there a graphical depiction of a command window with an error message in it. My question is about the text in this command window depiction, should it say Dog sameDog = getObject(aDog); and not Dog sameDog = takeObjects(aDog);? I was just a little confused by the introduction of takeObjects. Thanks.

Usually the O'reilly site is good for erratta, but this book has no errata yet. But if you think it's an issue, Kathy hangs in the EJB Cert forum sometimes, or post it to the erratta on and see what comes of it.

I agree. Here's the link:
