That is certainly a disappointment. Sounds like someone made a shipping mistake. Surely they will accept a return?
You may note, though, that about 90% of the D300 material applies directly to the D700. They are very similar cameras. If you are not going to return the book, why not give it a read-through, I think it will help you understand the D700 quite well.
