At last, here we have a book that provides a thoroughly readable introduction to fibre optics. It does not assume previous knowledge of the subject, nor a technical or mathematical background. It is suitable for engineers, technicians, students, hobbyists and installers, and covers the full range of fibre types. After a thorough introduction to the subject, ideas are developed so as to ensure that new knowledge is built on firm foundations, and with emphasis on the areas that have proved the most difficult. In keeping with this approach new terms are never used without being properly introduced and the main terms used in specifications and catalogues are described and typical values quoted. Furthermore, when dealing with equipment such as cleavers, splicers, OTDRs etc., a representative example of each type is used thus concentrating on the principles involved which can then be transferred to another model as appropriate. At the end of each chapter there are multi-choice questions, the answers to which are at the back of the book and where calculations are involved, a fully worked answer will be provided. There is a useful glossary included at the end of the book. John Crisp is an experienced lecturer in fibre-optics, microprocessors, mathematics, and electronics.
