It's coverage of the applications of physics to the human body and medicine is really very good. It's written well and is truly aimed at the students who know their anatomy but not how to use physics or math to a great extent.
It is written as a follow-up to a standard 2-semester physics course. The basics of physics are reviewed in two appendices one per semester, roughly. Since very I got a free copy of this textbook to review, since I'm considering building a level physics course on it.
The textbook will therefore need quite a bit of supplementation to make the course work. It's a very good read for people interested in the applications on their own, but again, it assumes you already know some physics.
Also, the problems at the end of each chapter are decent, but there aren't enough of them, and they will also need to be supplemented. In short, this is a good book and is exactly what it claims to be, but I'll need to add quite a bit of basics to it to make it into a 1-semester course with enough background for the students to really learn the material.
One gripe I have about the book is the lack of respect for units. When the author is doing a calculation, he often plugs numbers in right away without starting with the original formula! The units appear on the final answer magically. This probably won't bother any of my students, but it bothers me since I work very hard to not let them do this sort of thing.

This text could be used in two ways: It is very well written; it is certainly accurate; and it is pretty complete. Review quote Reviews from the second edition: Wood prize from the Optical Society of America for his seminal work in optics. His contribution was foundational in the field of confocal microscopy, which allows engineers and biologists to produce optical sections through 3D objects such as semiconductor circuits, living tissues, or a single cell.
He has published more than papers in physical chemistry and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Association for Advancement of Science.
