You must run the IDE at least once after installing the documentation
to make it show up. Have you tried this?

And if you did try this, please try the following and report back
whether it helps (so I can add it to the FAQ):
- Remove ~/Library/Preferences/comp.apple.help.plist
- Run the IDE

This procedure will make all help books disappear, but the
will re-appear once you run the corresponding applications.
