Description for Optical Fiber Communication Systems with MATLAB® and Simulink® Models, Second
"This book describes the principles, practices and modeling of optically amplified fiber communications systems using MATLAB® and Simulink® platforms. This lecture-based book is pleasant and contains careful discussions of a large number of topics dealing with the multifaceted aspects of light-wave optical-fiber communications engineering. Binh does an excellent job of focusing on practical applications and fundamental issues. What sets the book apart from other optical fiber texts is the author’s framing in terms of MATLAB Simulink models. The target audience for Binh’s book includes undergraduate engineering and science students, as well as optical engineers and designers."
―Book Review by Professor Christian Brosseau, Université de Bretagne Occidentale, Brest, France, writing in Optics & Photonics News
"This book adds an aspect of programming and simulation not so well developed in other books. It is complete in this sense and enables directly linking the physics of optical components and systems to realistic results."
―Martin Rochette, Associate Professor, McGill University, Quebec, Canada
"…this will be an excellent textbook since it has all new development and information on optical communication systems…I think this book can easily replace many other textbooks in this field."
―Massoud Moussavi, California State Polytechnic University-Pomona
"The book is well written. It describes the fundamentals of fiber optic systems and presents the exact model texts and mathematical formulas which can be used to create practical computing models."
―Associate professor, Dr. Paulius Tervydis, Kaunas University of Technology, Lithuania

Grammatically, it reads like the transcript of an interview. Pro tip: This is a bad thing. I have, without exaggeration, read very poorly self-published novels with better grammar.
Axes of graphs are routinely unlabeled and undescribed. Figure 2.2 on page 21 was especially bad: No axis labels, no numbers at all on the u-axis (or x-axis), "solutions" on the figure that have no explanation at all, and a description that is completely useless. It literally states "The curve indicated by _______ denotes the expression v= u tan u; ... denotes v=u/tan u; and ..._ denotes V^2 = u^2 + u^2." Let me stagte unequivocally that "______," "...," and "..._" are not valid figure descriptions in any situation. Ever. Furthermore, the second equation ("...") is not graphed in the figure, and the third ("..._") is a typo. There is actually even more wrong with this one figure, but I think you can get the point.
Hopefully the book improves, but these first three chapters have the feel of a brand new operating system that is sold with known bugs in order to meet a deadline.
Professors, as a graduating student in engineering, I ask that you not inflict mass confusion and misinformation on your students. Please wait until a better update comes out.
