Hah hah. I spent a long time trying to figure this out. I had came to the conclusion that the book was wrong, so I went to find it's errata. The book is not wrong. Luckily for you that it just so happens that chapter 2 of this book is free over the internet, as example content.

Go back to table 2.2 on page 45 and look at the units of your constants again.
