For some reason I (incorrectly) interpreted that "the book" was something coming from IAEA.

I guess I was thinking along the lines of the Gamma-ray Spectrum Catalogs that can be had as pdf's from INL.
(Although I tried a link I had saved today and it failed. Then, starting at the top of inl.gov I never found my way to them. A search on the whole web for "gamma-ray spectrum catalog" did find the pdf's at an INL page, but way down the search results list.)

Oh well, that's really unrelated... but shows how things I expect are out there on the net are getting harder to find.

Internet content, websites and data can disappear, websites die or be re-named, data that might prove dual use, get pulled off. Assume the internet is a place loaded with material that may or may not be there again, once found long ago. Whatever is in a book is there for as long as the book exists.

https://archive.org/web does a pretty good job of preserving sites from the past.
The more reactive the materials, the more spectacular the failures.
The testing isn't over until the prototype is destroyed.
