Had exactly the same problem and solved it the same way.
The relevant text completely misses this aspect and I'm not impressed by the writing style and clarity.
Having added a Site.Master file to the root, the "TRY IT OUT" on page 152 doesn't work!
Clearly another omission on the part of the author!
What a shambles of a book! Very annoyed to have wasted my money on this rubbish!
