He suggests using some homemade lighting setups which yeild less than professional results and do not seem to be the lighting setups which he uses as a pro. Looking at his work with models he obviously uses a pro-lighting setup and not a "diy garage" setup.
I looked at this book at B&N, and was disappointed. It's off my list of contenders, and I'm searching for a better resource.
