What bothered me the most was the possible plaigarism - the similarity of text to my books in some sections and similarity to some of our graphics. Consider for example the drawings about fiber optic connector termination on pages 418-430 to the photos in The Fiber Optic Technicians Manual on pages 91-93 (and the larger set on the "Virtual Hands On - Connectors" web page now on the FOA website. These appear to be just line drawings copied from my photos - right down to the six-shooter connector curing oven (p 426 vs p 92).
I'd advise anyone considering this book to look at the "FOA Reference Guide" series to get the facts and save money.
