"There are charts and lists galore. In fact, the book's great virtues are its clarity and its comprehensiveness." - W.A. Vincent for Choice
"Box's book is a romp in the playground of everyday movie magic...the gadgets, their monikers, and the puzzle masters that bring meaning to vanity and career success are explored within the Set Lighting Technician's Handbook." - Mike Dilley, Take 1
"In plain language, Box discusses day-to-day practice on the set, current equipment in use and extensive tricks of teh trade useful to everybody from the director of photography to the gaffer, rigging crew, best boy and lamp operator....Box thoroughly demystifies the world of film lighting."
- Ray Zone, American Cinematographer Magazine
"Having worked in motion picture lighting since 1978 and a Gaffer for 10 years, I can appreciate that [Box] took an approach which can be understood by anyone in the industry...As far as I know, this is the most comprehensive book written about motion picture set lighting, ...covering over 90% of what a set lighting technician actually does when he goes to work."--Russ Caldwell, gaffer
"The language of the book is clear and utilizes a style that assists the reader to assimilate the information into work practices. The appendices are an excellent compilation and I know they are unique to the SLTH. One would have to go to several other lighting and camera books, the National Electric Code Guidebook, and manufacturers' data sheets to look up the same information that has been included by this author"--Michael Gallart, gaffer, rigging gaffer, and best boy
"Anyone looking to learn the art of film and TV could do a lot worse than read this book." - Lighting & Sound
