  1. The section on the typeof operator is somewhat incorrect. I can be string, number, boolean, or symbol ALONG WITH function, object, and bigint.

  2. The section “The typeof type guard” may mislead the readers unless the author corrects those type with the lowercased types.

  3. Crazy language… The only way to really check for union typed classInstance is to have some unique filed name in it and do “if (uniqueFieldName in classInstance)”… *blarghhhhh
