Description: This book serves as a relatively good introduction to fiber optics. The book has a rather thorough derivation of the theoretical modes in waveguides and fibers for different index profiles, but is more weak on the experimental side e.g. scattering mechanisms for light is only discussed briefly.
On the whole, the book can be recommended as an introduction, but probably not as a stand-alone reference. The by far largest drawback of the book is the index or rather lack of index. Considering the large amount of information presented in the book, the index is almost non-existent. This seriously impairs using the book as a reference handbook.
