I was surprised too what he said about the pocket screws. Everything else I’ve heard said that they are very strong joint if done right. If you go with the kreg pocket screw jig you won’t be disappointed. I have one and love it and like I said earlier every review I read on them said nothing but good about them.
As for your friends bookshelves, you only saw the joint you saw was pocket screws, loose tenon don’t show. That is one of the nice things about them, those and biscuits and dowels if done right and good you won’t see.
I’m glad I was able to help for once I’m the always asking questions here LOL
