Is GUID good?

Is GUID good?

A GUID is a globally unique identifier for a database.  There is much interest lately in using the GUID for a table’s surrogate key. For example, Bob the Customer could be uniquely identified by the GUID value‘6A603133-2280-4D24-83CB-59AFCDF52297’.

What are the pros and cons of using a GUID for a surrogate key?
