You are looking in the wrong place for this information.  The Info
format of a book is not a book, it's an on-line documentation file.
For the book details, you should either (a) look at the Texinfo
sources, or (b) produce a PDF or DVI/PS format, and look there.  (The
former is much easier, of course, if you have the sources.)
