The file samples.tex requests updated bibliography data for some of the 
samples. Since the file is a few years old, it is not clear if this 
information has already been provided.

If it is still needed, here are entries for three of the sources and a 
note on the source of another, along with corrections for a few typos.

The first bibtex entry was lifted from Google Boooks, the other two from 
the ACM Digital Library.

       title={Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite 
for Wonder},
       author={Dawkins, R.},
       publisher={Houghton Mifflin Harcourt}
       author = {Hofstadter, Douglas R.},
       title = {Metamagical Themas: Questing for the Essence of Mind and 
       year = {1985},
       isbn = {0465045405},
       publisher = {Basic Books, Inc.},
       address = {New York, NY, USA},
      author = {Tufte, Edward},
      title = {Envisioning Information},
      year = {1990},
      isbn = {0-9613921-1-8},
      publisher = {Graphics Press},
      address = {Cheshire, CT, USA},

reich.tex is a list of the voice samples from Steve Reich's 1995 
composition /City Life/.

Corrections for dawkins.tex, douglas.tex, and knuth.tex:

In each set, the first line is taken from the current sample file and 
the second is a correction. The dawkins.tex and douglas.tex corrections 
are based on scanned images on Google Books, the knuth.tex correction is 
based on my personal copy of the book (first edition second printing).

dawkins.tex is from pages 145 and 146 of the book

    I also note that all of the quotes in the Dawkins source are
    single-quotes, not double-quotes as in dawkins.tex, \quote{}, not
    \quotation{}. This is unusual for a book printed in the USA by an
    American publisher, so perhaps Dawkins wanted it that way.

    There are a few other differences, but these are most likely due to
    publisher's style sheet and the lack of availability of logotypes
    for TeX and Metafont.

knuth.tex is from page 50 of the book
