Why not - if not already - follow the book past (& indeed up to &
including) that point; think, observe, keep your question in mind,
and see if it gets addressed satisfactorily in due course.

And similarly in general (at least): for the first 1/2/.../few builds of
the book, do it manually, and follow the book carefully; and >= many/most
queries (that are likely to be had early-on) are likely to be addressed
at least substantially; and then one is more likely to have a better
understanding of the why/why-not.
