I was a freshman in high school in 1960. My science teacher loaned me a copy of the 1948 edition of "Nuclear Radiation Physics." I used what I learned from reading it to construct an x-ray machine. My Grandfather's medical clinic discarded a used x-ray tube. I then built a 50KV Tesla coil to power it. Thus I assembled a working x-ray machine. The book warned me that no amount of shielding or distance would completely eliminate radiation exposure. I did not have a radiation measuring instrument at the time. I thus shielded it with lead plumber's plate and powered it from a downstairs switch to keep as far away as possible. Many years later (1985) I applied for transfer to the Radiation Monitoring group at a California nuclear plant. I only missed one question on the interview and got the job. I worked there for 15 years in various capacities before retiring in 2000. I owe my successful job interview to what I learned from this book after studying it beforehand. Some may be put off by...

This book was recommended as a good read inspite of its scientific and mathematical content. I am nearly half way through the book and I confirm that this is an excellent source for those wishing to be informed and thoroughly grounded in introductory Nuclear Physics. This book is somewhat dated since it was last published in the 1970's. However the unique writing style (for science textbooks) gives the reader a solid starting point on which to leap off into the current state of the art physics. The cost of used editions is also extremely reasonable and doubles the pleasure of reading this book.
