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.

erix learned the word 'portaging' not so long ago (from vikings lugging their ships from one river-system to another)
[choroba]: my best run so far
[erix]: I think they build a portaging installation for yachts here not so long ago - lemme google it
[erix]: choroba ah, you should have sprinted 7 s off that :)

Corion avoids running by starting on time
[choroba]: my phone showed me 1 hour 10 km which was my goal, it changed a bit after uploading to the website
