All the controls are on the "View" menu. In the group that has "Main Viewer" etc. click on "Browser". That will give you a sub-menu with the options that I think you need to straighten things out. It probably got changed with an inadvertent keystroke.
Yes, it was an inadvertent key stroke, but my frustration level reached a point where I could not think clearly, so thank you! I knew it was something simple as that, just could not find the right option to switch the view.
Additionally, the last thing I am missing is the "used and unused" view of the pictures in the fimstrip view at the bottom. Before, when I used a picture it showed me how many times I used it (in red), now when i use a picture it disappears from the film strip view.
Thanks for all your help!

i just figured it out... there is a small little box with options "show all images" or "show unplaced image"
to many little boxes to click in aperature sometimes with no explanation on where things are...
Aperture is large, complex, and powerful. Before using it to store or manipulate any valuable data files, you should read and understand at least the first seven chapters of the User Manual. The UI and the general workflow are laid out pretty well. Spend some time with it, and ask here for clarification of things that don't make sense to you.
The chapter on using the Book Album to create Books is here.
