    Yes, it will work on numbers and Boolean values.

    Any number other than 0 evaluates to TRUE and 0 evaluates to FALSE.

    A text value will generate the #VALUE! error:

    =IF("x",1,0) = #VALUE!

    Ha, I believe that falls into the category of "did you try it and see what it does"?

    The -- is called a double unary and in this instance it coerces a 1 or 0 from TRUE or FALSE.
