TL;DR: read the book, take it with a grain of salt, and try to take some of what Bob said into your daily thoughts about how some things are done.

As much as a like this book and it's commentary, this requires every developer that's ever touched a keyboard to live, eat, and breathe this ideology for it to be consistent. That doesn't mean that some of his suggestions can't be used, it's just that if you wanted this to be the holy Grail, it would really need to be executed perfectly.

That being said, look at CPPCoreGuidlines. Good standards based around a community and Bjarne. There are others like it for other languages.
