Excellent book to summarize khan's "The physics of radiation therapy" even more clear than his original book! It would be very useful especially for medical physicist and dosimetrist. This book also provides with helpful problems(~10 per chap) and solutions for each chapter.
I own both Khans and it is true that the material here is presented more succinctly. However, I bought this book solely for the review questions at the end of each chapter. For me unless challenged I don't learn. The review questions are indeed great, high yield, and are written in board review style. However, I was very disappointed to see the complete absence of any explanations for their answers. They merely list the answers, but if you get it wrong you will have no clue as to why you did so and even worse what the correct approach to solving the problem is. Even a brief explanation would have sufficed.
