Though radiation is ubiquitous, the word tends to stir up thoughts of disasters at Chernobyl and Fukushima. Aiming to inform the average listener, the authors offer an accessible, balanced introduction to the controversial and often misunderstood subject of radiation. With his careful delivery of key scientific concepts and vocabulary, Robert Fass assumes the role of trusted informant and prepares listeners for detailed discussions of examples of radioactivity, both natural and man-made. The tone is conversational, and Fass deliberately manages the pace to focus the listener's attention and prevent information overload--no small feat in light of this topic's complexity. The result is a provocative and useful examination of radiation's risks and benefits. The production includes a reference guide with illustrations.
