As in Volume 1, the purpose of this volume is to try to bridge the gap between the classroom and the practice setting. Volume 2 is well illustrated, has more than 1,000 references, and contains questions at the end of every chapter that should leave the reader with a sense of the important concepts of the chapter and cause the reader to probe deeper into the true meaning of what is written. Answers to all chapter questions can be found at the end of the textbook.
Volume 1, Recognition and Evaluation of Chemical Agents, and Volume 2, Biological Aspects, offer a strong foundation for industrial hygiene.
