Although nearly one third of its text pages are concerned with bone, this monograph does quite well at living up to the promise of broad coverage implied in its title. The physical and radiation dosimetric aspects of radioisotope decay are particularly well covered. There is some discussion of the biological effects of radiation in the chapters on relative biological effectiveness and permissible levels of radioisotopes in the body, but otherwise, so far as biological aspects are concerned, the emphasis is on tracer studies. The book is clearly, concisely, and authoritatively written throughout, with generous use of high-quality drawings and photographs
