Hi,

I believe there is an error in chapter 3, section Comparable regarding the package:

1.
2.
3.
You might have noticed by now that we have been writing java.util.Comparable. That’s because it is in the java.util package

Comparable is in java.lang, not in java.util; as the book points out in the summary table a little later.
