I think this is a common problem and the best thing to do is slow down. I know probably not what you wanted to hear.
I'm not familiar with that book but I'm sure it's probably like most other language books. So what I'd recommend is as each new topic is introduced work through the sample code and problems no matter how trivial they seem. The primary reason being that you may be assuming that topic is easier than it is and when you start working with the code you quickly discover that there is a piece, maybe only one line that doesn't work like you thought. Through these trials and tribulations of working through the code your brain absorbs the information better allowing you to apply/recall it more easily.
