Finally some useful information on residential lighting design. This is not a book on selecting decorative lighting fixtures. It is a book dedicated to a successful proven architectual lighting philosophy with photos and renderings to back up the claims. Will this book make you an instant lighting expert? No. Will it assist you in a thought process for designing your own home? Yes! But most importantly I found it helpful in understanding the process and products of this behind the scenes practice.

Alovely, artful display of some elegant house lighting examples, but short on basics and principles of lighting. More a coffee table book, or a selling tool for electricians. Not completely without ideas, just sparse.
