In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 149:

The paragraph after the first code snippet on page 149 in section 5.3.4 states that dpkg --show is more or less the same as dpkg --info. Instead of the --show, this should read --status, as in the code snippet.

Glenn English: "The Debian System" is exactly the one I'd been looking for. It's an excellent discussion of sarge (3.1), and it's full of useful information: theory, philosophy, HOWTO, and why. [...] And the best thing about it is that when it's lying open by the keyboard, the book doesn't try to close itself -- the pages lie flat. [...] Kudos to the publisher! And you, too. This is a marvelous piece of work.
