From the PublisherThe author … has skillfully assembled a body of knowledge on preparedness and response to accidental and intentional radiological and nuclear incidents targeted at concerned citizens and early responders. … this book is a good contribution on the subject. It is a good resource for both perspective and plain-language explanations of sometimes complex subjects. I would recommend it to health physicists, emergency managers, and those involved with public communication.
— George J. Vargo, Health Physics, June 2011
I was very impressed with the book and would strongly recommend it … . The book is well written and places many very intimidating subjects in simple language. … I personally was particularly impressed with the author’s ability to communicate the risks associated with radiation in terms that are both expert and toned down to layman terms. … The book also contains a number of unique items, or perhaps little gems, such as insights not commonly found in the literature nor echoed in circles of health physicists. … In conclusion, I found the book to be well written and of high quality with a potentially wide audience who could substantially benefit from reading and using it.

Dr. Ansari efficiently presents a lot of valuable information in understandable terms. I found the book very useful and think it will be well received by non-scientists and professionals who need to know about radiation safety and nuclear-radiologic preparedness for their work.

I found it to be a great resource … for the non-radiation expert.

... the best and most comprehensive treatment of this subject…informative and enjoyable to read…. This book will make a valuable addition to my reference library and, I would think, to yours as well. And to your physician’s, your neighbors’, your therapist’s, your hospital’s, your relatives’, and for anyone else who might have to deal with a radiological emergency or its aftermath.
