I recently ordered Harry Box's book - Set Lighting Technician's handbook. A great read but more technical rather than discussing the finer (stylistic) points of lighting. Anyone recommend a good book that covers this?

I recently read "Reflections" by ASC press. It is a compilation of interviews and practical workshops by master cinematographers which goes into enough detail to see how they each approach lighting to achieve their different looks. Quite a good read in my opinion.
