Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This compact survey of radon--covering its physical properties, detection, mitigation technique, and other miscellaneous information--is a curious blend of highly technical facts most suitable for the specialist and practical information for general readers. Fortunately, the author (radiation oncology, Columbia) includes helpful summary statements every few pages. There is a clear description of testing and mitigation methods for homeowners, as well as a discussion of potential liability of various parties when homes are found to contain significant levels of radon. The United States Environmental Agency booklets listed in Appendix A might be of more help to the average reader. Another source is The Radon Directory 1989 ( LJ 3/1/89).-- Ed. -- John Creech, Western Carolina Univ. Lib., Cullowhee, N.C.
