If you are an aspiring electrician and want to work in movies and commercials this is a must-have for your shelf. Even a seasoned pro can learn a thing or two and the attention (and clear explanation) given to electrics is superior to any trade manual on the market. I've been reading, Mr. Box's articles in Film Crew Magazine for the past few years and it is even more valuable to be able to have some of this knowlege bound in a book.

A great book for any film electrician, whether you're starting out or need a handy reference for wiring anything. It gives overviews for every aspect of lighting, starting out with the types of lights and cables and going into electrical theory later on. This book has basically become a must in the IA local here (Pgh 489!). Wanna do film, get this book.
