# Linear Algebra Done Right

## First and Second Printings of the Second Edition,
Errata

I tried hard to make Linear Algebra Done Right
error-free, but spotting mistakes in one's own writing can be
difficult in a book-length work. Errors in the first and second
printings of the second edition that I know about are listed below. All these errors were corrected in the third edition.
If you notice additional errors in the book or have suggestions for
improvements, please let me know (`linear@axler.net`
