    Once a book is published, as the author one is bound to find some mistake or misprint every time one opens it. After resisting to open it for quite a while, in April 2010 I found one such mistake: on page 190, the random time "bold epsilon" is not a stopping time. However, this wrong statement is irrelevant for what follows. Another little misprint was pointed out to my by Irving Glick (May, 2010): on page 16, last line, the sum should start with n=1. Eleven years later: page 143, line 6 from bottom: "= y" instead of "= x". Page 144, line 4: it should be "produces k children". Page 149, in the proof of Theorem 5.54: it should be u(m) = 11...12, not 00...01.
    Regarding the potential theoretic issues of Section 6, I found it desirable to provide some additional remarks on the Riesz decomposition for superharmonic functions that are not necessarily bounded below (pdf file).
