Leo's book is a good, concise and concerning standard methods especially in nuclear spectroscopy up-to-date summary of the field. The basic physics ideas are introduced, although not too deeply discussed (but this is a book for the experimentalist, therefore no objections). It is a helpful companion in simple experimental considerations which come to an experimental nuclear spectroscopist every day: The color codes of resistors and the overview over the connectors in a CAMAC crate are examples for these features.
Elaborate references are given for each section that make it possible for the reader to find additional descriptions rather easily. Additional insight on dosimetry and radiation damage and some remarks on statistics make this book an interesting alternative to G.F. Knoll's "Radiation detection and measurement".
The emphasis of Leo's approach is surely (a) on a concise overview rather than an in-depth discussion and (b) on nuclear spectroscopy... Read more
On my opinion this book is very well developed with theoretical and practical information with exercises (examples) that helps in subject understanding and study. Would definitely recommend to everyone starting in college nuclear physics. Believe has data/information that can help to personal involved in research, development and engineering of nuclear physics.
An older book, but still a staple in particle physics. Very helpful explanations of lots of background material.
