How good is 2/1 as a bidding system?

I just started playing 2/1 with a new partner for the very first time.  My partner lent me Lawrence's book on it, and I was amazed how much judgement (ie endless cuebids) seems to be called for in the 2/1 sequences.  This is definitely NOT a system for average players I would say.

Basically, my main difficulty is  the lack of definition in the 2/1 sequences, where it appears to me that working out partner's strength via extensive cuebids seems so much harder than having sequences which are more prescriptive.    Is the system really worth the effort, and how do you think it compares with a big club system?  I played Precision for years and seems to me it's much easier to play than 2/1.
