yes correct, are the path settings correct: the two fragments assume, 
that the CSS stylesheets are in the subdirectory style. so if e.g. the 
CSS link in the generated HTML document is "mystyle.css" then cocoon 
searches for this css in "style/mystyle.css"

moreover this match statememt seems also to remove all path information 
from the request and only select the filename. I have no idea why this 
is recommended in a book, but maybe you should better try something like 

           <map:match pattern="**.gif">
               <map:read mime-type="text/css" src="images/{1}.gif"/>

then: if the request ist for "myphotos/myphoto.gif" then this gif is 
searched at: "images/myphotos/myphoto.gif"
