Does rthe editors have an answer for that? I have the same problem!
Go to Pages, mouseover your Index page, select Quick Edit, and set Template to homepage. Then, in Appearance --> Editor, select Main Index Template (index.php) and edit that to the file in the book. It took a lot of poking around to find this; I'm going to be charitable and assume that WordPress has changed its versions significantly since the book came out. However, nothing excuses the moderators of this forum from not replying to these questions.
