Can you tell me about how "don't judge a book by its cover" is a bad principle and why we shouldn't follow it?

I think most of the time something will be good if it looks good. Similarly a thing that looks bad may most likely be bad.

    A book may have an ugly ***, bland cover but be an absolute page-turner. Good thing you didn't judge it by its cover.

    Sometimes you don't get to read the book and immediately have to judge a book by it's cover. For example, when you are walking home in the dark and their is this creepy guy just standing there obviously watching you, it's better to go by what the situation looks like and what the person is thinking and then take precautions.That guy MIGHT have just been waiting for someone and perhaps was watching you because he found YOU creepy and so he was protecting himself. However, should anyone take the time to figure that out and assume or should you immediate take action and cross the street, etc?
