This book is in the form of a textbook for an undergraduate course in optics and technology. It is concise, free of mathematical derivations and contains several tables providing a huge number of optical parameters which may be useful for optical design engineers as well. An appendix with the solutions to homework problems is also included at the end. The book is organized and well written, both as textbook for students and a brief handbook for optical engineers.
