In addition to comments made by others, you also need to ensure that you 
set the numbering properties for your books in the Book Window, not in 
the individual chapter files.  Settings in the Book Window override 
settings saved in the files.

Select the first file in the book, and set its numbering to start at 
one; select the remaining files and set their numbering to continue from 
previous file.  Update and save the book, and you're good to go.
