You still are being imprecise.  You don't give a title or author, and
you refer to the "chapter classes" whatever that is.  Do you mean the
chapter about classes?  If so, that's exactly where 'self' should be

How about copying an example function that uses self, that you think is
incorrect ?  If it is incorrect, perhaps we should give the author some

We all make mistakes, like my referring to class methods when I meant
instance methods.  But I didn't figure it was time to introduce class
methods, so I wasn't trying to make the distinction.  My error.
