Book Description:

Seemingly aimed at an undergraduate audience, this book should be approachable to a high school student who has had trigonometry. (Although a course in chemistry, or at least some introduction to atomic spectra, would be helpful.) It starts with the basics of light propagation and moves into the idea of the laser, discussing gain and resonators. Various types of control, such as q-switching and line-narrowing, are covered. Different types of lasers are discussed, as well as non-linear processes for frequency shifting.

The technical discussion is kept at a very basic level, with the inevitable simplification that results. There are, unfortunately, some typos and editing errors. The discussion of laser types is tilted a bit towards excimer lasers, perhaps not surprising as J. J. Ewing was one of the developers of the technology.

If you have no experience with lasers and want a straightforward book that will explain the basics, this book is a good choice. A little more attention to detail would have made it an even better book.
