Absolutely awesome. I find this to be easier to understand than the query module. The big bonus is, like Mark said: using it to pull only what you need from the db, thus cutting out a lot of processing overhead.

This is a really great add-on if you understand SQL queries then this can really shave off a lot of overhead of the channel entries tag for certain elements that you might need on your site.
