Format: Paperback
I picked up this book at a book store that was going out of business with 50% off all books. I'm an extreme Christmas light display decorator ([...]), so when I saw a book dedicated to this hobby, I had to have it.

Pros
The tips on how to wrap bushes and trees seem helpful, as are the charts for how many strings of lights you'll need per foot of tree (or sq. feet of bushes).
The 12 displays & how-to are a nice addition to the book and give ideas for your own set-up

Cons
Maybe the edition I was reading was old, but there was no mention of LED lights in the book at all.
Some parts are brushed over, such as how to create wording with rope light, or how to cut rope light (something I've yet to do)
No mention of lights synchronized to music. As this is becoming more and more popular, at least acknowledge it.

Basically, if you've put lights up on your house before, you probably know 80% of what's in this book. If you've never decorated your house before, this book will save you time and headaches as you put up your Christmas display.

I got this for my extreme lighting husband as sort of a gag gift but he really enjoys flipping through this book. It sits on his nightstand, under the tv remote control, so you know how important it is!

Format: Paperback
This book was given to me as a gift. I have been decorating for several years and found the book to be an enjoyable read. The author has a great sense of humor and definitely put me in the mood to decorate. Reading the "Holiday Hero" man creed was awesome. It was essentially a list of Christmas man laws. Brilliant. The section on electricity would be especially helpful for beginners. I look forward to reading the book each year!
