"An essential work for brachytherapy study... ...an excellent account of the physics of brachytherapy, is wide ranging and detailed... ...The text is readable and contains a wealth of information, not the least of which is an abundance of references which allows one to explore a topic of particular interest in greater depth... ...In summary, this book should be essential reference work for brachytherapy physicists and a good introduction to the subject for those about to enter this field. It is also recommend for radiographers and radiotherapists who have an interest in brachytherapy as there is much information here of use to them" -- RAD, April 1989
"This is a useful and interesting book for any physicists and radiotherapists dealing with brachytherapy treatments. It is well written and is a good reference book for those people already involved in brachytherapy techniques, since there is sufficient detail on purchase, testing, calculation and safe handling of sources. All necessary subject areas are covered and therefore each topic is dealt with fairly concisely, but there are sufficient references for further study... ...I would definitely recommend its purchase as a reference book by anyone involved, now or in the future, with brachytherapy treatments..." -- British Journal of Radiology, 1989
