Amazon Reviews:

“This is a must, not only for lighting people, but also directors and producers. And that is because this book endeavors to emphasize the ‘art’ of lighting, and not just the craft.
And it’s about time.”

“One of the top 5 books on Theatrical and Concert Lighting Design”

“You will never find a more comprehensive single source of those lighting ideas and techniques. Don’t read the book because you have to. Read the book because it will make you a better designer.”

“If you are dedicated to your craft, want to add to your knowledge base and get more out of your work experience, buy this book. Reading this book is like sitting down with Pilbrow and asking him how he did this or that and why.”
