Introduction to Air Pollution Science: A Public Health Perspective by Robert F. Phalen and Robert N. Phalen just received 4 stars from Doody's Review Service! According to reviewer, J. Thomas Pierce, MBBS, PhD, from Navy Environmental Health Center, it provides a straightforward "public health perspective that variously emphasizes air pollution impacts while placing them in the context of many public health concerns such as nutrition and infectious diseases."
Read more excerpts from the review:
"Describing the environmental issues associated with air pollution and its impact on public health, this very serious book embraces both the public health concern question and the basic science perspective.
This book arrives in an era that is somewhat unrivaled in terms of interest in air pollution topics. Global assessments of all disease and public health challenges have recently listed air pollution, primarily particulate issues, as a top-10 status. So the authors' economical use of words in producing a comprehensive book that is short of an encyclopedia but much more than a single issue treatise has a lot to offer. I will continue to recommend it to colleagues who teach in these subject areas."
