This book is an excellent introduction to EMF and has a great deal of depth and detail that even experts in the field will learn from. I believe this book can deliver another worldwide movement to protect our generation.
As a scientist myself, I can say that it may be a hallmark of mainstream science to deny anything that's not written about in your textbooks, but that is not true science--that is closed-minded bullheadedness. A bona fide scientist has to be open to ideas that are either not in the textbooks, or even conflict with them! In fact, that trait is basically what distinguishes a scientist from a PR hack. That has been the pivotal issue with EMF and EHS, and Singer brings the message out kind of, but not well focused as she might.
Now here, unfortunately, while Singer's heart is in the right place, she can't help the reader with understanding the technical concepts since she does not understand them herself. Surely an explanation of exactly what is power density, what is SAR, and the relation between the two should be a pivotal chapter in such a book, but this is not addressed at all. She even gets wrong the basics of commercial technology, which would require reading trade magazines but does not require a physics background. She has an alarmist section about the dangers lurking in internet-over-powerlines, without realizing that this was an industry trial balloon that fell flat on its face, for feasibility reasons. There may be many dangers lurking out there, but this is not one of them.
I see from reading other reviews that Dr. Blank's book appears to be better presented, so readers wanting a good presentation might turn there instead. Speaking of other books on electromagnetic phenomena and EHS, I do not recommend Louis Proud's "Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions: The Science of the Unexplainable." I bought that book and read it, but this turned out not to be a good use my time.
This book discusses it all.
