I got problems with the code in the book too. For example, at first I
was fail to run the balanced tree implementation, but this fact enforces
me to get deeper knowledge about it. Finally, I've implemented the
balanced tree on my own, examined the implementation in the book and 
even found that the pattern matching of "delete" function is not 
exhaustive :-) So, this partly not-working code is definitely a _good_ code.

FAR, Alt+F7, search through the \erlang\lib directory with desired 
string :-)
