Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Author Randall Whitehead proves that good lighting and green design go hand in hand. The book includes environmentally conscious tips on how to put together a well-designed lighting plan, room by room." (Home&Design, May/June 2009)

"Residential Lighting is a book that has certainly benefited from its second-edition treatment. Lighting technology— particularly as it pertains to energy efficiency—has moved at a breakneck clip for most of the last decade, and Whitehead's astute pen chronicles these changes and offers a hint of sensible prognostication about what the future holds." (residentiallighting.com, February 25th, 2009)
