By John Lewis
Editor in Chief, Laser Focus World

After setting the intention to continue the upward trend on the quality and impact of Laser Focus World content in last month’s editorial, I’m very pleased to welcome back contributing editor Jeff Hecht this month. Over the past decades, Jeff has contributed many popular features, tutorials, videos, and blogs, such as his recent tribute to Charles Kao, the father of fiber-optic communications. As our long-time and now returning contributor (and former managing editor), Jeff has been covering the laser industry for 35 years. A prolific book author, his published works include Understanding Fiber Optics, Understanding Lasers, The Laser Guidebook, and Beam Weapons: The Next Arms Race. He also has written books on the histories of lasers and fiber optics, including City of Light: The Story of Fiber Optics and Beam: The Race to Make the Laser.

During his recent hiatus as a regular contributor, Jeff was busy working on two books that will soon be available for your reading pleasure: Understanding Lasers: An Entry Level Guide, 4th edition from Wiley/IEEE Press, due out shortly, and Lasers, Death Rays, and the Long, Strange Quest for the Ultimate Weapon from Prometheus Books to be out in January 2019

Hey, Steve. Your link doesn't work. I was going to look into it and see what reviews of these books were saying.
