That's because the option didn't exist until Subversion 1.4 which the
first edition of the book predates.

A better way would be to use rsync to synchronize your local copy
with the one on the web server.

Or, have a working copy of your project on your web host, and in your
repository's post-commit hook, update the working copy on the server
with something like "ssh server 'svn up /path/to/workingcopy'". This
would require your repository to be on the Internet so that your web
host can reach it. It would also require the Subversion client to be
on the web host.
