BCMSN: whassup with STP?

I am going through BCMSN right now, and the STP chapters seem like a
bunch of band-aids. The goal seem simple enuff and yet...

OK STP fixes loops except it's not perfect and it needs band-aid#1...
but wait there maybe still problems, so here's band-aid#2....

What u folks working on switching think about STP and does BCMSN makes
it more complicated than it needs be?

In contrast, the wireless chapters are pretty clear to me.
