This book is a scholarly, well-organized, documented consideration of the subject. The authors have been interested in this problem for many years and have collaborated in research on pulmonary dust problems over the past 15 years. The book is written for doctors and engineers—for the people who are interested in controlling dusty environment and preventing pulmonary disease as a result of inhalation of particulate matter from the atmosphere. There is careful consideration given to the anatomi- cal and physiological factors in respiratory deposition of aerosols, the physical factors in deposition of aerosols, experimental studies on deposition of inhaled aerosols, pulmonary clearance, disease risk from inhaled aerosols, and measurement of respirable aerosol exposure. The book is well written and well illustrated. From time to time the authors summarize in two or three pages what has been discussed in the last one or two chapters. An excellent bibliography is provided, and the
