If you are not into all the "fluff" I think he would be good to ride with. But if someone expects to be coddled, not so much. Like you said, he doesn't sugar coat.
I am not much on the big clinician fad, but I would go to one of his. I had an opportunity to be a spectator at one a couple of months ago close by and unfortunately was unable to attend at the last minute. I have a friend of a friend connection that might be able to get me in on a private one next year, but I am not holding my breath!
So, yes, IMO, you should go....I would :)
