From the Publisher:

This fully updated edition retains the unique feature of its bestselling predecessor--the interactive, self-teaching technique that offers readers frequent questions and problems to respond to, increasing both learning speed and retention. Mathematical treatments of each subject discussed are set apart and labeled "optional" so readers can choose to do the math or not. Contains fresh examples and new applications such as the now-common use of fiber optics.
