I’m annoyed

"Python for Unix and Linux System Administration" is possibly the worst technical book I've ever read

I recently purchased "Python for Unix and Linux System Administration" and I found it extremely frustrating to read due to the constant capitalisation of code at the start of sentences whether it is correct or not. For example:
"Another high level library is urllib2. Urllib2 contains pretty much the same functionality as urllib, but expands on it."
'urllib2' and 'Urllib2' are two *very* different things in python. Finding sentences like the above all the way through the book makes it hard to trust any of the sample code and put me off reading the book entirely.
