This is partially true, yes. There's also a bunch of dips/calisthenics/climbs and so on that really emphasize core strength. Either way it's a good thing to have IMO

Well core strength is addressed by things like squats and deadlifts (and their variations). Some heavy ab work (ab work is core work but core work is not just ab work). If your need to be prepared for any specific things, though, then you are best off to do those specific things.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I'm looking at starting Rippetoe's Starting Strength, the one thing I haven't been able to find is how long to rest between sets? I'm seeing by poking around the internet that the best approach to hypertrophy is a good base, which Rippetoe's seems to provide. Is there anything else I should try to do or just concentrate on Rippetoe's?

Whitout reading all the replies above, IŽd say no in a short run but yes in a long run. Eating only 50% of the maintenance level will certailny shut down your metabolism.

A good rule of thumb - acoording to my experience - is to eat 500 to 700 kcal below your consuption 6 days per week and one day per week eat +1000 kcal above your consumption. Eatine more once a week will keep your metabolism going and does good for you mind.
