Introduces classical concepts of geometrical and physical optics with rigorous connections to fundamental theories of light--Fermat's principle, Huygen's principle, and Maxwell's equations. Establishes the conventional groundwork for optical understanding, including image formation, optical instruments, interference, diffraction, and polarization. Geared to advanced undergraduate and graduate students of physics as well as the professional scientist.

Was in very good shape. Loved it.
Very good book.
good product!! pretty love it!
Good optics textbooks are hard to come by. (Saleh & Teich is a notable exception.) But this is solidly the worst textbook I have ever had the misfortune to encounter.
The textbook is rife with errors, even the "corrected" 1986 edition. It complicates all the concepts and doesn't explain them briefly. The paragraphs don't distinguish technical annotations, explanations, applications, and caveats. It's impossible to skim, and reading it carefully is not what you're looking for when you're using this in a classroom. The reasoning is difficult to follow, especially when an equation / variable / graphic that it's discussing isn't found on the same page (or even the same chapter)--I don't remember what A is from 3 chapters ago! It cannot be used as a quick-reference book, due to the inability to find equations that written out for easy application.
In short, I do not recommend this book, and if you must get it for a class, rent it--it's not worth your money to keep it around.
The content in this book really isn't bad at all. It covers all the topics one would encounter in an advanced undergrad or first year grad course in optics. But content is only as good as it is trustworthy. The reason why I hate this book is that it is completely frustrating to follow derivations when they are laced with typos. Add to that frustration the frustration of working problems that are badly worded and reference figures that are different than what is described in the problem and you have a recipe for long nights of banging your head against a table. You'd think that they would've found most of the errors after the 1st edition, but they haven't.

I've only used two other optics books before, Hecht and Pedrotti & Pedrotti. Hecht is a nice, basic reference, but is not very advanced. It doesn't give you many details of what it describes. P&P is a pretty good book that I hated when I used it just because it often tried to describe in words some things that would be much clearer with a drawing. P&P and Klein and Furtak are aimed at a similar level, but for my money, P&P is the better choice if for no other reason that it's accurate.
The content of the book is very good, but the state of the physical is not the best, buy second at low prices; but I have previously purchased used books on Amazon and I have come as new.
The errors that appeared in the early printing of this text have been corrected in the later printings that are now being made available from the publisher.
This book is one of the only comprehensive classical optics textbooks at the advanced undergraduate level, and as such, fills an important niche. Practical material, such as image aberrations and radiometry, are handled here at a very accessible level, which makes the book a valuable professional reference.
