What is the Lydian Chromatic Concept?

I've recently found out about George Russell's book the _Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization_ and I've been curious about exactly what the Lydian Chromatic Concept is and how it can be used to compose music. I eventually plan on getting the book, but I've also tried to learn about it from other sources and they have been really lacking in basic information about it.So what exactly is the Lydian Chromatic Concept and what are some examples of this in practice?
