1) Quite a few typographical errors - if you are deriving everything yourself you will find most of these and it isn't much trouble
2) There are some blatant errors which are reused again in examples and derivations - one I remember off hand was the coupling coefficient in sinusoidal gratings but I haven't looked at this in a long time
3) Things are explained okay but not as clear as many other photonics texts in my opinion
4) The index is okay at best
I believe this book is a fairly standard graduate textbook for a first exposure on photonics which it serves pretty well if you are careful when reading it. I would not recommend this as a reference book. A better reference book at the same level or a bit more advanced would be "Physics of Photonic Devices" by Chuang.
