From the Preface - "For this book, you will need Python 3.4.2 or a later version of this as is available with Ubuntu 15.04 and Mac OS X 10.10. This book was written using Python 3.4.2 on Mac OS X."

Do you have python 3.4 installed?  The book points out that  make  will not work with python 2 and it didn't work on my mac with python 3.5 installed but no python 3.4 installed.  make worked on my mac after installing python 3.4.4.

Hope this helps,
