Bad practices are modeled ad nauseam: failure to double-quote variables, using "[ x -o y ]" as "[ x ] [ y ]", using "! Most of the scripts are not done in excellent modern practice.

Peter Yaworski. Make Your Own Scratch Games! Anna Anthropy. As some readers of the book won't have written scripts before, the book starts with a Shell Scripts crash course on the syntax of bash scripts and how to use them. However, this is very much a book aimed at 'this is how to do task xx', rather than 'learn to program using shell scripts'. The scripts do start off relatively simple and get more complex, and as a programmer you do learn about the power bash has to offer, but you wouldn't want to learn to program using either bash or this book.

The scripts are all followed by a paragraph explaining what the clever bit of it is, but again, this is more about showing how to achieve a result rather than teaching you what a particular command does. That's not a criticism; this is a book showing how to do clever stuff using bash, and it's very good at that. The descriptions also cover how you could 'hack' the script to suit your own specific needs.
