Industry Reviews

'Students, technicians and professional readers could benefit from this publication... For example, cable installation test or field service engineers, software engineers, electronic engineers, avionic engineers... Simply written in an easily accessible style which does not put the reader off and covers all of the basic topics in an appropriate and logical order.' Mike James, Westland Helicopters Ltd

"Tricker gives you a good overview of fiber optics, and he wraps up the book with useful appendixes that cover technical terms and fiber optic standards...and the price is more reasonable than that of most technical books..." TechOnline Magazine, May 2003
