Praise

“One big problem with man-made radiation: It isn’t going away any time soon. Even if all nuclear reactors were halted and decommissioned tomorrow, the radioactive material that fueled them would remain deadly for tens of thousands of years. So, it’s best to get used to it. In A Field Guide to Radiation, Wayne Biddle provides an overview of man-made radiation, decoding the terminology and helping readers to understand the difference between beryllium and beta particles (the former being relatively benign).”

The Washington Post


“Witty, succinct and handily organized in an A–Z format.”

Nature


“An indispensable volume for every library. . . . A very readable mini-encyclopedia.”
