Like all edits, it works great on some pictures and not that great on others.
Basically, it is a tonemapping technique that happens from the extreme edits in USM and Shadow/Highlight. Once you find the settings you like it only takes a couple of minutes (depending on smudging).
You can also get a nice pop (but natural look) by adding the original (cleaned up version) as the top layer and playing with the opacity.

a couple from Chris at dpreview.

Some more examples that show how the different setting/smudging can change the outcome.
