This book isn't perfect... some of the sources cited are suspect. But Magda Havas is a real scientist doing actual experiments and finding very clear effects. She also knows the research literature and does a good job of making it accessible.
There are other books that I'd rate as high or higher:
The Invisible Disease: The Dangers of Environmental Illnesses Caused by Electromagnetic Fields and Chemical Emissions
Fascinating, good reading. Unfortunately comes across as extremist in a few places.
The Sick House Survival Guide: Simple Steps to Healthier Homes
First section is a gripping first person account. Second part is about how to improve your home... a few glitches there, but overall good advice.
Silencing the fields: A practical guide to reducing AC magnetic fields
Excellent book about how to find and fix wiring errors in the home (with an electrician or some basics of wire nut connections). Unfortunately it does not address medium (such as switch mode power supplies, e.g., wall warts) or high (cell phones, cordless phones, wi-fi, wireless devices) frequency fields, which these days are much more likely to cause harm than 60 Hz.
The authors have backgrounds in environmental and human health. They recommend that wireless technologies be replaced by fiber optics and wired routers, and that standards of safe exposure be based on biological, not thermal, effects. Of course this is very much a political issue, and they discuss the political and corporate interests involved. They warn that wireless proliferation is out of control and must be curbed immediately to avert disastrous public health consequences. That wireless "advances" such as Wi-Max and "Broadband over Power" present unacceptable dangers.
This book is in question-and-answer format so it is not comprehensive, but it covers a lot of ground. And there is a whole section that points you to further information in books, videos, journals, websites, etc. It is lavishly sourced, but not indexed.
