I'd be happy to follow along, sure. We definitely need better summaries of Clean Coding than the ones Martin provides.

The one piece of advice I give on the topic is summarized like this: Clean Coding is not sacred scripture. Brain not included. As long as you bear that in mind, which it already looks like you do, you should be fine!

Thanks for the information. I did, fortunately, see that in the last video of that series even he said that these are the ideals and they must be broken at least occasionally and that if you watch the videos that he puts on the cc website then you will see him demonstrating reasons and times for breaking the rules.

Ultimately my professional understanding is that nobody executes ideals. You just learn them so that you can figure out the very best ways that you can incorporate the pieces into your workflow and team standards.

I'd argue, that should be the first video in the series, not the last. There are too many people who cite his ideas as gospel. Glad he said it, though. It's better than nothing.
