it was amazing

This is one of the most informative and fascinating books I've ever read. The author is very talented and obviously did a lot of research for this book. It not only gives an in-depth history of artificial light of every kind (Many I didn't even know ever existed). But it also ties light into many different facets of our lives. There is a great deal of history learned from reading this book that you won't likely learn anywhere else. Exciting and interesting facts about our ancestors and things about their lives we never knew or even considered. I was amazed at how she was able to tie so many varied life experiences to the availability and lack of light. To anyone who loves to learn about this earth, it's history, the history of civilization, etc. This book is a MUST read.
