Not so much explained

The narration is not bad, given the. material. The book does not seem directed to a specific audience. It is sort of a chatty discussion about a few radiation related topics. It might be suitable for children, but does not seem aimed so. Very light in the explanation and occasionally wrong or at best fuzzy.
