I’m frustrated

Why are there so many problems with code?

Programming Flex 2 has a lot of code errors. Why didn't someone check the code? The hours of time wasted are very discouraging. The examples often don't work at all! Security Sandbox problems etc. I have little programming but have even fixed some of the code and even submitted one mistake fix others missed. but the quality control is obviously lacking. Example 10-13 on page 227 is Dynamic States but doesn't work!!
