    Buyer beware.

    This review is based on a thorough analysis of only one of nine chapters in this book. I carefully read the review material and answered all of the questions in Chapter 3 "Radiation Therapy Physics". As an ABR certified Radiation Oncology Physicist who teaches a course in Radiation Therapy Physics to RTT students, I have to say that I am very disappointed in this chapter and hope that it is not indicative of the quality of chapters in the entire book. The chapter contained multiple errors in the review text, as well as multiple examples of poor wording or misleading explanations for physics concepts. Of the 95 questions, I had objections to 13, whether due to outright incorrect answers, incorrect answer selection from the list of choices, erroneous reasoning given to answers, or poor wording leading to ambiguity in the question.
    The content chosen for the chapter was reasonably organized, but I would suggest that the publishers consider having a physicist review the chapter and publish errata or a revised version.
