Using MS Access/downloading the practice files from a book

Question
hi Bob, pleased to meet you!

I've bought the book "Microsoft Access 2010 Step by Step".
I want to download the practice files. The instructions on page xxiii tell me to access the site:

"http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Linkid=192153"

without the quotation marks.

When I click on the above site, I'm at the Home Page of Microsoft Press.
The book's instructions tell me to "display the detail  page and follow the instructions for downloading the files".

But I can't find the detail page!
So please help me: can you tell me how to find and open the detail page?
I've emailed my request to them, but have not received a reply.

Interestingly, a while ago I purchased two other books in the Step by Step series. They also provide practice files to be downloaded from detail pages; and I can recall having trouble doing so.

Your help is appreciated.

Chris

Answer
First, I'm not Bob, but I want to that page and across the middle is a menu. One of them says Downloads. I clicked that, and there was a link to download the content. This is the URL.

Hope this helps,
