In my opinion yes, you are missing something or the book
doesn't give a very good recommendation.  OnClick means
"a pointer button was clicked" [1].  If you submit a form
when the user clicks over a select list, how could the user
even access the options in the list?

I would recommend not using OnBlur either.  ;-)  I would also recommend
reading books about user interfaces in general, not only those about web
sites.
