From the reviews:

"This introduction to health physics is meant to serve as the basis for a two-course series in the study of radiation protection. ... The book is meant for individuals wishing to study radiation protection/health physics. ... the chapters discuss advanced concepts and mathematical models that are appropriate individuals seeking an in-depth understanding of radiation protection. ... very useful as teaching text. It is clear and concise and the problems and examples further elucidate the material." (Dean W. Broga, Doody's Review Service, August, 2008)

"The book, provides a definition for HP and a broad overview of the field. ... a comprehensive text providing an overview of all relevant topics of HP. ... the book can serve either as a reference for the practising HP or as a text for a course. ... present the most up-to-date treatment of the topics covered." (Michael P. Grissom, Radiation Protection Dosimetry, Vol. 138 (4), 2010)
