tldr; your message, and from skimming the content for sure the book.

skimming it "just coz it compiles it's not good code" yeah, but that takes him how many words?

Oh wait, that was not only the the first excerpt, two more excerpts that say... exactly the same thing using different words. Way to turn one single sentence into a whole book!

lets substitute "programs, programming" etc for cars, mechanic-ing (and of course the tools named etc), "The Secret Life of Vehicles: Understand Cars - Craft Better Transporters" - just as appropriate, let's fill the book up with how people have done it wrong -
... "just because it looks and moves like a car doesn't mean it's wise to use it on the road."

Now let's change it from cars to
- trading shares. Just Because you made a few pennies doesn't mean you should quit your job yet.
- Heart surgery: Just Because the patient woke doesn't mean it's going to last.
- Raising Children: Just Because they didn't starve doesn't mean they're good.
....

self righteous - make yourself look smart by pointing at other peoples failures.

thanks for the heads up, I know for sure it's not for my reading list.

(yeah I know some people like reading theory stuff,
some of us though have better things to do chores the missus told us to do.)
