Here's the .perltidyrc file PBP recommends; it was left out of the source tarball. Posted with the author's kind permission.

Any typos are my fault, and not TheDamian's. (Edit: And there are 3 fewer typos than there were, thanks Util!)
Well, the odd -wbb list is inherited from perltidy's docs, so that one's not mine or his :)
Edit: Applied update to -wbb pointed out in Re: PBP's .perltidyrc file, was Re: Perl Best Practices. I wonder why !~ was removed?
Previous -wbb value:
-wbb="% + - * / x != == >= <= =~ !~ < > | & >= < = **= += *= &= <<= &&
+= -= /= |= >>= ||= .= %= ^= x="
