A reasonable text to understand SONET
Ignoring the grammatical/syntactical errors and inconsistent line tabulations. I feel this is a fairly reasonable book to understand the structure of SONET. He does a satisfactory job in explaining how SONET data is constructed from the PDH structure. I like the fact that he at times repeats the essential details which helped me remember them and not have to refer to earlier pages. I felt at times he could have done more to explain certain points n more detail; e.g how does positive/negative frequency justification affect the design and buffer threshold. He does not explain how the data (email/telephone/fax) fetches its way across to its destination. I just got the basic awareness of SONET and will have to read other books to get a complete picture.

Great Informative book
I like this book because it got good explanation of the ring network and overhead bytes that I am trying to understand from the other books I got. It also has a good explanation of SDH which we use here in Australia.

Want to understand SONET - buy this
I agree with some of the other reviewers - lot of grammatical/spelling mistakes - but nonetheless this is a real great book on SONET. Written in a easy to read, lucid format it explains all the fundamentals well with plenty of examples. I would recommend this book to anyone who has some very basic knowledge of networking/SONET - will really help one understand the bits and bytes of this technology.
