boost library lexical_cast cann't be compiled

Dear advanced g++ programers:

  I tried to copy/test a piece simple boost library's lexical_cast
c++ code from book c++Cookbook, page 122, example 3-2.
// Example 3-2. Using lexical_cast

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include "boost/lexical_cast.hpp" /* I comple this program
                                   * right above directory boost
     //  <boost/lexical_cast.hpp>

using namespace std;

int main() {
   string str1 = "750";
   string str2 = "2.71";
   string str3 = "0x7FFF";
   try {
     cout << boost::lexical_cast<int>(str1) << endl;
     cout << boost::lexical_cast<double>(str2) << endl;
     cout << boost::lexical_cast<int>(str3) << endl;
   catch (boost::bad_lexical_cast& e) {
     cerr << "Bad cast: " << e.what() << endl;

eric@eric-laptop:~/boost1/boost_1_46_1$ g++ usinglexicast.cpp
usinglexicast.cpp: In function âint main()â:
usinglexicast.cpp:16:34: error: âstr3â cannot appear in a
usinglexicast.cpp:16:21: error: no match for âoperator<<â in âstd::cout

++/4.5.2/ostream:108:7: note: candidates are: std::basic_ostream<_CharT,

std::char_traits<char>, std::basic_ostream<_CharT,
_Traits>::__ostream_type = std::basic_ostream<char>]
This is only beginning portion of more longer g++ compile errors.
plz help
thanks a lot in advance
