Customer Reviews

Remarkable!  May 25, 2011

The coverage of everything from basic lighting design and development of moving fixtures to programming and formulas in one volume is decidedly beneficial. It literally contains everything you could possibly need or want to know. It is (without hyperbole) all-encompassing. In fact, I would not hesitate to say that Cadena's text could easily replace the three texts I currently use as references. This textbook helps you understand how to take advantage of that world. Recommended.
