Jeff Deck and Benjamin D. Herson traveled across the U.S. for two and a half months to find and correct typos in public signage. Deck and Herson tell the tale of that journey in their new book, "The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time" (Crown). Our heroes unearthed over 400 spelling and grammar errors during their adventures, and certain kinds of typos kept popping up along the way. You must know your enemies before you can vanquish them; use the following reconnaissance to win the battle against typos. Here are the top 10 most common typos in America today.

Their book, "The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time," is available now.
