p. 373 printed: \(W = -2 \log\left(\frac{L(\theta_0)}{L(\hat\theta)} \right) = 2 \left(\log(\hat \theta) - \log(\theta_0)\right) \approx I(\hat \theta) (\theta_0 - \hat\theta)^2\)
correct: \(W = -2 \log\left( \frac{L(\theta_0)}{L(\hat\theta)} \right) = 2 \left(l(\hat \theta) - l(\theta_0)\right) \approx I(\hat \theta) (\theta_0 - \hat\theta)^2\)
