Does the book have a nice big table of operator precedence rules or such
like.  Accompnaying this should be a list of which operators are left
associative and those which are right associative.  You should find that
the = (a.k.a. assignment) operator is right associative, meaning that it
is evaluated from right to left.  If your book doesn't include anything
like this then it's time for a different book IMO.
