I am 3/4 the way through this book and am loving it. He really breaks it down and explains everything well.
What I like the best is that he tells you what strobes, reflectors, scrims, etc he used for each shot as well as a drawn out diagram explaining placement and power settings.
It is really helpful to me and I am enjoying it more than McNally's book based on the teaching aspect of it.

Just finished my first read of this book and have to say I am impressed by it. Reading about each setup in detail and seeing a diagram of it for reference really helps put light placement and power ratios into perspective for me.
