'With its broad scope this comprehensive guide will appeal to physicians and non-physicians alike and will benefit readers with limited access to journals and review texts.' The Lancet 'It would make an excellent starting point for any serious student or interested lay-person on the current thinking regarding indoor air quality problems. Environmental and public health students as well as environmental health officers would certainly benefit immensely, especially at the paper-back price.' Leonard S. Levy, Indoor Environment
