Anthony Morganti's LR5 Tutorials?

I've been told that these are good videos to learn LR5 and PP from, by many people here. I've watched a couple of his videos and a few questions started to arise. For most of his pictures, he goes through a standard 'pull back highlights and lift shadows 100%, then optimize whites and blacks' procedure. It seems like sometimes this yields good results, but I just feel like it might not be a good solution other times. I'm new to all this and I cant tell what is wrong exactly. Can you guys chime in and say what you think about this, and this guy in general? Also, other things like sharpening to 70 and NR to 30, etc. I just want to get a general idea of how legit his teachings are, since he seems to be showing a lot of techniques which I am not sure are trustworthy or not.

This is his first of many tutorials, for those who has never heard of him.
