Lots of technical info, less creative,
This review is from: Motion Picture and Video Lighting (Paperback)
I found this book to be thorough regarding technology of lighting: what lights exist, what do you need in terms of power, situation etcetera.
What I missed here was more in depth information about how to use lighting to get certain effects: the creative use of lighting. It is there, but is a small part of the total book. There is a lot of technical info, aimed at the (more or less professional) "Gaffer" and less aimed at the filmmaker (director).

The book you are looking for is Blain Brown's Cinematography: Theory and Practice. This book delivers what should be expected of it and so your 3 star rating is unjustified.
