If you are new to fibre optics then this is the book to get. It provides a complete overview of fibre optic technology from the methodology and history of the technology through to Wave Division Multiplexing.
It provides the reader with an easy to follow explanation of the components of a fibre optic system e.g. cables, connectors LED's, transmitters, receivers, couplers, etc without confusing the layman with mathematical formulae.
The book also explains basic design of optical links plus an introduction to testing techniques.
Overall an excellent book for the layman and student alike. Throughly recommended and deserves all 5 stars
