From the reviews:

“An Introduction to Radiation Protection aims to provide the reader with a useful reference tool for all areas of radiation protection, from introductory concepts including standard units and basic nuclear physics to the more specific techniques for selecting instrumentation and practical safety measures. … features useful diagrams, which are used well to explain particular concepts, light hearted cartoon sketches drawn by the author also feature throughout the text. … Overall the book would prove a useful addition to a radiation-safety professional’s bookshelf … .” (Steve Pritchard, CERN Courier, Vol. 50 (9), November, 2010)

Aus den Rezensionen:

 “... Das ... Buch enthält ein besonders ausführliches Stichwortverzeichnis, ein reichhaltiges Glossar, eine kurze mathematische Einführung, Tabellen und viele Rechenbeispiele mit Lösungen ... Hier liegen die großen Stärken des Buchs. ... Dies liegt auch daran, dass es durch die Skizzen des Autors und die Zitate zu Beginn jeden Kapitels ausgesprochen kurzweilig zu lesen ist ... Wer den Menschen vor ionisierender Strahlung schützen will, muss Erkenntnisse aus verschiedensten wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen berücksichtigen. Claus Grupen hat dies in seinem Buch ausführlich getan ...“ (Werner Rühm, in: Physik Journal, 2011, Vol. 10, Issue 5, S. 50)
