This book will take you on a series of adventures in atomic energy. You'll find out what it's like to be a part of this wonderful new field. By learning a few of the basic principles of the science, and by performing exciting experiments, you should be able to determine whether you'd like a career in atomic energy. Before you do the experiments, you should be aware that atomic energy isn't for carelessness. 

You would not deliberately hold your finger in a flame, or drink a bottle of iodine. These things can be harmful if they are not handled carefully. It is the same with radio-active substances. Radium paint from the dial of a clock should not be allowed to touch your bare skin. It is harmful if breathed, swallowed, or rubbed into an open sore. 

However, if you scrub your hands and tools after performing the experiments, and if you are careful not to spread the paint dust into the air, it will not harm you. 

Any radium paint left over after your experiments can safely be gotten rid of by flushing it down the toilet. Thousands of people work safely with atomic energy every day. You can too. Perform your experiments carefully, and you'll find it very true.
