I just found this book in a B&N notice. Wondering if anyone has read it? I'm thinking of getting it.

I have started reading it and it is great. I would say that *everyone* interested in light pollution and its consequences should read it.

Thanks Scott. Do you recommend hard copy or e-book? Are there a lot of illustrations? Sorry I posted before I saw your post.

Thanks for the heads up on that Dennis.
I just bought the Kindle edition.
I don't know if all of the illustrations are there but there are some, albeit, somewhat small.

Dennis, there are only a few illustrations. I like hard copy, but your mileage may vary.

Just ran across a long excerpt in Salon.com.

Maybe this idea is getting some traction...

Cheers!

Just ran across this at the library by chance and rented it.
Will start it today. Flipping through it not many illustrations/pics
so looks kindle friendly.
