This is definitely the book to read on the problems of excessive artificial light. This is not an issue most people think about. The crux here is what we're missing when too much electric light blares down on us, obscuring our visual connection to the universe. What do we give up? What is our relationship to darkness and what does this have to say about who we are? I appreciate the author's arguments about misperceptions regarding darkness and safety, even if this would be a hard sell to the general public. All in all, though, this is a timely and important book.
