This book, receiving so much buzz, has on p. 3 "Obama was fiending for information in a way his aides had never seen before".

"Fiending" is not found in, but defines it as "craving, desiring, wanting, obsessing (over)"

I'm wondering if anyone else would have understood the sentence, and not thought it was some kind of typo or misprint.
