"...will no doubt become the standard text on the effects of short-term electrical exposures, both intended and accidental." Micro Wave News "The book is well written and easy to read. It contains excellent medical illustrations, and the author does an exceptional job in annotating equations, tables, figures, and graphs, and relating their significance to the physical systems under excellent reference which will be particularly useful to the engineer, medical scientist, or health professional working with electrical medical devices. Also, this book will make a good secondary classroom text for most graduate and undergraduate bioinstrumentation courses." William Nau, Engineering in Medicine and Biology
