Is there something wrong with using "sh spanning-tree summary" to view the root bridge status?

S1#sh spanning-tree summary
Switch is in pvst mode
Root bridge for: VLAN0001, VLAN0005, VLAN0007-VLAN0010, VLAN0022, VLAN0043
  VLAN0058, VLAN0067, VLAN0079, VLAN0146

    No there's nothing wrong with it.  It just depends on what you want to
    verify.  'show spanning-tree' on its own shows more detail than
    summary, but it's like comparing 'show ip interface' and 'show ip
    interface brief'.  If you don't need all the detail there's no need to
    look at the normal 'show ip interface' output.
