The bold actually states to avoid the pump if size or/and strength are the goal.
I think (even though it doesnt mention it) it means that working out strictly for a pump is not going to yield results.(which i certainly agree)
Its pretty much written for the skinny kids that only stay in the 15-20 rep range and wonder why they never get stronger or add any muscle.

But completely avoiding any pump is ridiculous in my mind. All my movements start and end with a high repetition set. 1st set is to get blood and nutrients into the muscle to prep it for the later-more demanding heavy sets to follow. And the last set is for the same point, to leave the muscle full of nutrients after it has been worked.
