I think you've read that part of the book wrong. The default (and
"original intended" functionality) is to *include* the externals, as
TSVN does. To not include the externals, use the "update to revision"
command and check the "ommit externals" checkbox.

But as of r18422, you can set the advanced option "IncludeExternals" to
false and have the default update exclude the externals.
