“This is an excellent book which is worthy of a second edition. It is intended to be thought-provoking and it certainly achieves that aim. One of its strengths is that it not only challenges our thinking, but it also uses mathematics to tie the ideas down."

Totally lacking in practical techniques (wallwashing, accenting, framing, cove details, indirect lighting, etc) or technologies (lamp sources, dimming systems, optical systems), one wonders who this book is aimed at. For the technical engineer, the presentation of material is too basic, to spread out and so forth. For a real-world lighting designer, it contains few insights. For an architect, this book says just one thing: "stay out of lighting".
Cuttle provides a single new idea, his own calculation of measuring the Flow of Light as he calls it, a concept which is essentially redundant to any lighting professional or student versed in the concept of modeling (the principle, not rendering) in light.
I cannot see who this book is suitable for, and do not feel that there is anything that it can contribute to those for whom the material would be useful. Students need more sophistication, engineers more efficiency, etc.
