Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983064601, Hardcover)Let There Be Light is a highly personal journey whose beginning was the starting point of a meteoric rise that captured the admiration and imagination of the architectural lighting industry. Book One is Jack's own inspiring story, which takes him from 1940s Moline, Illinois, where he literally had to fight his way through his school years, to the top of the lighting world-in New York, where he bickered and dickered with armed mobsters and worked on the World Trade Centers; in Chicago, where he lit the John Hancock Building; and finally in Southern California where his neighbors and friends included Alfred Hitchcock (another lighting expert), Dean Martin, Danny Thomas, and notorious mob lawyer Sydney Korshak. It takes us into a world of geniuses, rogues, and entrepreneurs. Let There Be Light is actually two books in one-a uniquely witty portrayal of Jack Zukerman's life, but also celebrating the art and engineering of an industry in which Jack more than made his mark.
