I have both of these somewhere,  and the titles are not exactly the same,  
though they're pretty close.  I've been posting a few odd books here and 
there over on amazon,  it hadn't occurred to me to get into the TAB books yet 
(or I haven't encountered that box yet :-).

Yes,  there are many errors in them.  Lots of typos,  and lots of blatant 
errors too,  that seemed to be typical of the stuff from that publisher for 
some reason.
