I know the classic Painting with light By Alton, but are there any other books on lighting that are worth taking a look at?  How do they compare to Alton's text?

Film Lighting by Kris Malkiewicz is an awesome book... the best, in my opinion... used by industry pros, as well as universities teaching film.  Get it used, and don't spend more than $10 for it.

I'm saving my money to buy Writing With Light by Storaro. Right now I have to be satisfied with the little Writer Of Light interview booklet that AC puts out.

Oh, and AC has that other amazing looking book, 28 Cinematographers, I think it's called...
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

That must be some fine book to cost $70 on Amazon.com.  What makes it so great?

It's actually called Reflections: 21 Cinematographers At Work


And as to why...

Coutard - Breathless, Storaro - The Last Emperor... "accompanied by detailed lighting diagrams and frames from 35mm workprints", along with many other great dp's.
