1) So you did:

sudo rm -r /usr/share/example-content

2) Or did you:

sudo rm -r /etc/skel/Examples


rm /home/yourusername/Examples

The first has deleted the files 
The second one only the link from /etc/skel/Examples to the files 
in /usr/share/example-content

So if you only deleted the link a:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/example-content /etc/skel/Examples 

ln -s /usr/share/example-content /home/yourusername/Examples

should give back the content again.

NB. You better had removed the example-contents packet if your intention was 
to remove the files ;-)
But don't worry you can have it back by reinstallation of example-content in 
synaptic if you really deleted the files.

No, only:

Select Chapters

    * Using Ubuntu on the Desktop
    * Support and Typical Problems
    * Using Kubuntu

Hhm, I may agree for a private use at home but for an office I would pledge 
for having the book. 
And not to forget the book makes some money for Ubuntu people, at least for 
the authors (who are active motu's).
