The book is a little more technical than an easy reading book on optical components. You would need a degree in physics or electrical engineering to understand. And the author uses a lot of math to discuss the concepts. But it's a readable book if you're just looking for the main concepts on each chapter. You can skip a lot of the math and focus on the english. I wish the book was more english and less math, but overall it's an intelligently written book and covers all the main components that you need to undersand optical and laser communication systems.
