What Do People Say About "Lennie"?

"I am a 30 year veteran of the "Bell System" with many years of experience with design of OSP Systems and also had 15 years as a product Rep. for AT&T/Lucent with responsibility of representing their fiber cable and apparatus products in the Northwest. In all those years I have not seen a better guide that takes the basics of fiber optics and puts it into an easily understandable format ..... that includes the "famous Bell Labs" fiber guru's."
