This is an excellent reference book for the radiologist and research worker in radiation science. The quantitative data presented comprise a collection of material from various authoritative sources. Thus the radiotherapist or physicist needs to refer to only this one book in his daily practice. There is also a section on radioactive isotopes. Much of the hitherto unpublished data will serve well to form the basis for new standards. The technique and materials presently used in radiography are also well illustrated in diagrams and tabular form. Because this book is a presentation of established data with little or no explanatory sections, the beginner will probably find himself lost in it.
