I completely agree with you that blindly dictating the book as coding standard is a mistake. I think there are some great guidelines in the book but also some I disagree with.
This book really improved my coding style and I recommend it for this discussion, but it is of course up to the user to decide which guidelines he/she wants to follow.

I think Larry Wall sums it up pretty well:
We do not all have to write like Faulkner, or program like Dijkstra. I will gladly tell people what my programming style is, and I will even tell them where I think their own style is unclear or makes me jump through mental hoops. But I do this as a fellow programmer, not as the Perl god...stylistic limits should be self-imposed, or at most policed by consensus among your buddies.
