Anyone using LAB Colour space to retouch?

Long ago (perhaps a decade or more - it was published in 2006) I acquired the book "Photoshop LAB Color" by Dan Margulis. It was portrayed as a revolutionary "paradigm shift" subject that would transform the retouching abilities of any Photoshop user!

I did try out a number of the techniques illustrated in the book and found some interest in the results.  But I confess that I soon drifted back into what might be termed bog-standard RGB colour space editing.

The book popped out of the far end of one of the many bookcases the other day, which prompted me to have a bit of a read and a wonder if anyone uses LAB colour space these days to retouch their images.  There's very little about it in DPR forums, with a post or three from 2016 the latest I could find......
