Apologies for Mistakes (Now Corrected) in My Review of Scott Pomfret's Only Say the Word: Forests Have Timber, But Voices Have Timbre!

My apologies to all of you for the embarrassing mistakes in the review of Scott Pomfret's Only Say the Word, which I spotted this afternoon when I re-read my posting with care. I do know the difference between "timber" and "timbre," and have now corrected that egregious error.

I also know that a sentence using the phrase "disparity between how he deals with" should have a complementary phrase "and how he deals with," and I've cleaned up that sentence, too. There may well be other solecisms sprinkled in the text, but for now, I've spotted those (and a typo or two), and have corrected the version of the book notes I had posted earlier today — and apologize to you all for not having seen the mistakes earlier.
