The fourth edition of this book is more colorful and the pages are smoother but the material is almost the same as the previous edition [3rd edition]. The book is easy to read for students and a quick reference for medical physicists. the book takes the reader gradually from the basics to the point where the core of medical physicist work rely. The background mentioned in the first few chapters is clear and brief.
A prescribed text, this book was incredibly expensive and, having previously studied physics as a minor, I could have completed my coursework without having to spend $250 on this textbook. Probably best to save your pennies and borrow it from the library.
