Source db/slideshow_data.sql

From http://examples.oreilly.com/rubyrails/ I downloaded src-start-
chapter-4.zip and extraced the following file, which fails to import
correctly. Is this a syntax problem, a database password problem, or
what?

[email protected] ~/oreilly-photos $
[email protected] ~/oreilly-photos $ cat db/slideshow_data.sql -n | head -n
2
1 insert into slideshows values (1, ‘Interesting pictures’,
now());
2 insert into slides values (1, 1, 1, 1);

Just to clarify, it can be done, but not at all in the way which the
oreilly book says:

[email protected] ~/oreilly-photos $ mysql -u root -p
