I don't have a copy of the book, but I think it is just a book typo. 
According to this changeset:

readln always had the current interface since it was introduced.  What the 
book should have done was used copyln (or get):

void main(){
    Cout("What is your name? ").flush;
    auto name = Cin.copyln; // or Cin.get
    Cout("Hello ")(name).newline;
