Not technically an error, but immediately redunant (indicated by my italics):

p. 377:

‚* Step One Frame Forward/Step One Frame Back: The Left Arrow and Right Arrow keys move the playhead back and forth one frame at a time, while Shift-Left Arrow and Shift-Right Arrow move the playhead in one-second increments.

‚* Step One Second Forward/Step One Second Reverse: Shift-Left Arrow and Shift-Right Arrow moves the playhead back and forth one second at a time.

Also on p. 377, this is clumsy wording:

Previous Keyframe/Next Keyframe: Shift-Semicolon moves the playhead to the next previous keyframe on the left when keyframes are displayed in the Timeline, while Shift-Apostrophe moves the playhead to the next keyframe to the right.

Better would be:

Previous Keyframe/Next Keyframe: Shift-Semicolon moves the playhead to the previous keyframe (to the left when keyframes are displayed in the Timeline), while Shift-Apostrophe moves the playhead to the next keyframe to the right.

p. 379: Play to Out: Option-Command-Option-Forward Slash (/). Initiates playback and stops at
the current Out point.

I'm pretty sure this should be described as either Option-Command-Forward Slash or Command-Option-Forward-Slash. There is no Option-Command-Option key combination.

The Guides section (pg 962) is not accurate for version 15.2.2 on Windows. Nothing happens when right clicking on a Viewer.
