No stars... from the downright dreadful photographs to the out of touch prices, Ms Lindenbergers book is a real disapointment. Being one of the top collectors/dealers of modern lighting in the U.S I was appauled at the lack of effort that was put into this book. None of the better examples of 50's & 60's lighting were represented.Prices ran from Over priced junk lamps to under valued masterpeices. Ms Lindenberger doesn't even attempt to give the reader any information on the comapnies that produced these lamps or the designers who created them. Instead we are left with dark, blurry, photographs and a horrible pre computer era layout. As in most of Ms Lindenbergers books, she is dreadfuly off the mark with her prices. To get a true feel for lamps of the 50's & 60's please try and locate the wonderful "Turned On" lamps of the 50's book by Leyland & Crystal Payton. A colorful and informative guide to modern era lamps. And they don't embarrass themselves with out of touch prices. Ms Lindenbergers lack of effort is a real dissapointment, Turning out collectors price guides like sausages. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

what a jip. the cover shot has these cool looking lamps and all but once you open the rest of the book it turns out to be a blurry mess. does this publishing company have a computer? Hello is anybody in there? some of the worst lamps i have ever seen are represented in this book.mrs lindenberger should at least do some research on the prices these lamps regularly sell for. perhaps by checking on eBAY. come to think of it between Ms. Lindenberger and schiffer publishing they have put out more trash price guides than singer made sewing machines.Dont Judge a book by it's cover is definately appropriate in this case.

This is typical of the work (or lack thereof) of Jan Lindenberger. Lousy pics, little or no product or maker information and completely off base pricing "guide". Don't waste your money on ANY of this "authors" titles if you want accurate information. Shame on you, Ms. Lindenberger and Schiffer Publishing for cranking out this low caliber garbage.

although some of the pictures are not the best, I personaly enjoyed looking at all the quirky lamps. (there are some really outa-this-world looking lamps in this book.) If you want to see some really over the top lamps, check out this book.
