"Interestingly, it is the 1970 version of the handbook that is most frequently sought after. This edition preserves the essential content and dramatically expands on it. Other handbooks with subsets of this information are available along with online sources, but the completeness of this single volume makes it valuable. The extent of data it includes for diagnostic medical imaging and radiation therapy makes me wonder if it is better suited for medical physicists than health physicists. This is not truly a limitation of the book, however, because it increases its utility and potential audience. My old copy of the 1970 handbook is worn and tattered, and I've purchased an electronic copy of it because I wasn't willing to give it up. I fully expect that this new edition will become a similarly treasured reference and will be dog-eared and ragged on the shelves of many health and medical physicists. Perhaps more importantly, it will be an often-clicked bookmark in many browsers."

"This book adds the "next milestone" to the continuum begun by the original Radiological Health Handbook, circa 1950. This update is a welcome comprehensive data reference for anyone involved in the practice of health physics."
