Can anyone please explain how the value of the infinity norm is equal to the max of all xi's?

suppose $x > y$ As $p \to \infty$ $x^p$ will dwarf $y^p$ so that effectively $x^p + y^p \approx x^p$ with equality in the limit and thus $\left(x^p + y^p\right)^{1/p} \to \left(x^p\right)^{1/p} = x$ Just apply this idea to each of the elements of the vector.
