    That book is a bit advanced, but the content is correct.
    ; m) J/ q4 z7 O8 tTraditionally due to should be restricted to adjectival use; hence, it should usually be followed with a to be verb. In that sense due means attributable.

    Both above sentences are correct, but you better practice using the second one.
