There is a book by the name of Asmaa ul Husnaa, which gives the different virtues of reciting the 99 names of Allah. E.g. when reciting a certain name at a specific time and for a specific amount, it will bring such and such benefits. Is this not bid'ah? If not, then is there a daleel to prove its existence?

It’s not bid’ah as long as one does not make it obligatory on oneself. But indeed the names of Allah have a special effect. Allah Ta’ala Himself said to make dua by means of His attributes. Thus, one can make dua by taking the names of Allah for a good effect.
