Even though this book is being published nearly 10 years after Light Talk: A Year In The Life Of Light saw the first light, Martin’s second book can be considered a prequel as it covers a period starting back from 2003, well before Martin started to blog in 2009. Similarly to A Year In The Life Of Light, this book is a compilation of Martin’s more than 16 years of writing in Lighting Today Magazine, a magazine about world actualities in the lighting industry, published out of Singapore. Practically from the beginning Martin has been hosting his column sharing his insights and views about the lighting design industry with his readers. Light Talk: 16 Years In The Life Of Light, offers an incredible insight on how the industry has evolved right from the early days of LED technology making its way into our daily life up to the new smart world we live in today.
