Corrections to Wind Energy Comes of Age

The following are corrections to the second printing of Wind Energy Comes of Age. The second printing incorporates several corrections of typographical and spelling errors found in the first printing. But alas, we apparently didn't find all of them before the second printing went to press. If readers find any more errors, or if there are any questions about the content, please send us a query. We will try to incorporate reader suggestions in subsequent reprints. Send your comments to pgipespam @ spamigcspam . spamorg
