By J. Yeager on September 28, 2010
Format: Paperback
I see the light! And thanks to the book Green Lighting, by Brian Clark Howard, Seth Leitman, and William Brinsky, it's costing me less and it's easier on Mother Earth than ever before. I'm a huge fan of do-it-yourself projects, but most DIY books devote, at most, a chapter to lighting and barely a word to eco-friendly lighting options. Green Lighting provides easy to follow instructions and contains a mega-wattage of supporting materials and additional resources. Well researched and organized, Green Lighting helps readers understand not just how to incorporate green lighting into their lives, but why it makes so much environmental and economic sense to do so. This book will pay for itself over and over again, every month when you get your incredible shrinking electrical bill. Unless you're Amish, you need to read this book today.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This 2011 book is a good non-technical introduction into energy efficient lighting. Published by McGraw-Hill, so the formatting and editing are generally high quality. Numerous photos, but all black & white. Aimed at both the residential and commercial market. Good general introduction into lighting concepts. Two of the authors are from the "green goods" world, and one is a lighting expert, and that author background ratio is reflected in the content. For example, more content about funky green light fixtures than the technologies of occupancy sensors and lighting controls.
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.

I'll admit I'm biased because our anti-nuclear organization Rock The Reactors contributed research and assistance to the development of this book. So rather than write a glowing review, let me repost this comment I read on the Huffington Post recently, written by a blogger who goes by akvdh1:

"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!

I've been wanting to upgrade my house to LED's for the last year or so. However, my wife was not willing to let me spend the money I needed to get the best units. In part of my research, I bought this book about "Green Lighting" and it was just fascinating to read through it. Because of this book, I was able to convince my wife that it would be a wise move and also a great eco-choice. If you're interested in learning about green lighting, I would highly recommend this book. It will tell you everything you need to know.

This is a topic very near to my heart, so it's great to see people out there creating relevant literature and how-tos for green living. Getting the lighting in my apartment building converted to much, much more "green" levels would really be great, so I am passing this along to my landlord as well.

Brian Howard does a great job giving you the details and reasons "why" eco-friendly lighting is important, but also goes the extra mile beyond just providing data. This book helps dispel popular green lighting myths while also providing handy tips to help you save money, energy, and the environment....all through lighting.
