Author, The Cheapskate Next Door and The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches
Biggest negative with the book is that the 2011 publication date is already quite dated in the lighting world. We are witnessing the LED revolution, which in 2015 is now in full force, but was just beginning in 2011. A lot of fluorescent, HID and incandescent lighting systems are becoming obsolete, and that was not the case in 2011.
"The biggest and quickest savings comes from wasteful energy inefficient lighting that accounts for 23 percent of all electricity consumption. 6,700,000,000 light bulbs and fixtures screaming to be replaced with energy efficient LED, OLED and better building designs to add natural light in retrofit and new buildings."
That should make enough of a case to suggest this book to all the boutiques, salons, spas, galleries, restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, factories, showrooms, homes and schools you can find, ask them to pick up a copy of this amazing book so we can kick off the LED revolution!
