"LET THERE BE LIGHT" by Jack Zukerman



LET THERE BE LIGHT, My Life Among Giants, Monarchs & Mobsters in the World of Architectural Lighting

Soars to Number 1 on the EdisonReport Best Sellers List

If you are in the lighting industry, LET THERE BE LIGHT is a ‘must read’.  The story of a highly personal journey of one man from the streets of Moline to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, is not only a compelling read – it’s also a celebration of an industry that combines art, engineering, and inspiration, as told by Jack Zukerman. 

LET THERE BE LIGHT is actually two books in one.  The first section is Jack’s own inspiring story where he literally had to fight his way through his school years to the top of the lighting world.  Dickering and bickering with armed mobsters, butting heads with the likes of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley Sr., and lighting the John Hancock Building is only part of Jack’s narrative.  

The second section is a collaboration that features an all-star cast of today’s greatest, iconic lighting designers who responded eagerly to Jack’s request to describe their most formidable lighting challenges.  

Chip Israel, Mike Gehring, Randy Burkett, Barbara Horton, Paul Gregory, Charles Stone, Gary Steffy, Ray Grenald, Craig Roberts and David Singer all contributed stories and dramatic pictures of their most challenging lighting projects world-wide. 

LET THERE BE LIGHT is one man’s tough, honest and thoroughly American success story.  Jack Zukerman pushes back the darkness in unique and dazzling ways!
