Good as in powerful, yes. Good as in enables you to write really fast, efficient code, yes. Learning assembler also is helpful because it helps you better understand how your computer works.

However ... Is it good as in easy to learn? Heck no. Good as in practical for most purposes? No again. Nowadays, for most programs, there's not much point in programming in assembler, unless it's for the core engine of a 3D game or highly graphics or calculation-intensive program.

Is a big truck that can move 30 tonnes better than a small sports car that can go 200 mph?
