    DIGI book chapter 11 Synchronous counters 11.3 underneath the graphic titled "A four-bit synchronous " down" counter". In the first sentence it says, "...we can build a counter circuit with selectable between "up" and "down" count modes...". It should be, "...we can build a counter circuit with selectability between "up" and "down" count modes..." or "...we can build a counter circuit with selectable "up" and "down" count modes...".

    That will also work. I'm on a tablet and typing with my thumbs. I think I would have to use at least one example of how it could be changed to best point out the error. Would you like me to provide more possibilities for revision in my feedback?

    Not really, one is enough, and good enough is enemy of the best.

    This is a situation for KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid. When our editor comes through he will appreciate both the help and brevity.
