4 Link for Companion files
Page 4 errantly gives the link for the companion files with the book's code as http://www.dummies.com/extras/matlab. This is incorrect. This is the correct link.
145 Page 145, 2nd paragraph, text error regarding use_idf
In the 2nd paragraph of page 145, the end of line 2 talks about what "use_idf" controls, and indicates it is turned off in this case.
In this case use_idf is turned on (by default), not off as the text specifies. Please see the documentation: http://scikit-learn.org/0.15/modules/generated/sklearn.feature_extraction.text.TfidfTransformer.html#sklearn.feature_extraction.text.TfidfTransformer.

145 Page 145, 2nd paragraph regarding tf_transformer.transform()
In the 2nd paragraph of page 145, line 5 talks about calling "tf_transformer.transform()", but this expression doesn't appear anywhere in the grayed code box.
Actually in the code, it is tfidf.transform() that does the transformation.
