LaMothe tends to have alot of typos in his codes and explanations.
also i believe his second edition has extra content as well as corrections of the first edition.

also seeing that someone will mention it.
his code is not optimized but it runs; he even says in his book
that you should be proficient or very comfortable with programming
in C, and that his code is meant to be optimized and
revised so that you may think more about what you are doing and
dig deeper into the code and why you''re doing it.
