His name appears to be spelled Tanenbaum, with one 'N', so the original is
fine. However, a search on the book appears to show that the ISBN is
0132199084 (pub. date 23-Aug-1994 or September 1994, depending on the
source). Ah, a search at Prentice-Hall says that its ISBN is 0-13-219908-4
and that it has a publication date of August 1994 but a copyright date of
1995. So you don't need to correct the spelling of the author's name, but
you should update the ISBN.

Cheers,
Philip
