    The following line:

    As in amphitheater rows, the outermost shells are hold more electrons than the inner shells.

    Should probably read:

    As in amphitheater rows, the outermost shells are able to hold more electrons than the inner shells.

    Good catch Scanman. Indeed you have uncovered an error of omission. Your suggested correction appears to be the one that the author intended.

    Thanks for your contribution to improving the text.

    The error has been noted and slated for correction at the next update.
