Yes, that is correct. That appendix is basically completely unrelated to 
the rest of the installation guide.

Not sure what you mean by "the right way". Both methods (using d-i and 
using deboostrap or cdebootstrap directly) are valid methods to install a 
Debian system, though the debootstrap method is clearly for advanced 
users and probably only for specific use cases.

I (still) don't have Martin's book, so I don't know what exactly you are 
referring to.
