5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Source 1 Nov 2007
This book is a must for anyone interested in exercise physiology and is ideal for those on a sports science/physical education degree or similar. This book covers many key topics including muscular function, cardiovascular control, neurological control, metabolism & energy, training, nutrition, health & fitness and many more.

All texts are clear, precise, well structured and reasonably detailed with practical and theoretical implications also. There are many colour photos, labelled diagrams, tables and graphs all of which are clear and easy to follow and compliment the text very well. There are study questions at the end of each chapter with frequent overviews and summaries throughout.

Also this book isn't as complex as some exercise physiology books out there, but still manages to provide excellent information in good detail.

Overall I would say this book is a very informative resource, is clear and relatively easy to comprehend, and is a reference that I frequently use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review not from an exercise physiologist. 30 Jan 2007
I'm electrical engineer but I enjoy practicing and learning about sports and exercise physiology.

I consider reading this book better than buying thousands of sport/fitness magazines because the last one are not, in general, scientifically founded and full of wrong (market driven an potentially dangerous for your health) information. Of course, if you are not a exercise physiologist or do not have an undergraduate degree in correlated area you can have some difficult to cope with the book, but a basic knowledge in chemistry and biology can help to overcome most of them and learn the foundations.

Additionally, the book offers hundreds of references which can be helpful for further reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and interesting 8 Jun 2007
By Vincent Schoneburg - Published on
The book goes a little deeper into the world of humans and sport. It touches on common themes like cell/muscle anatomy, energy systems, adaptations to training, nutrition etc. If you have read on these topics in the past, you'll find this book helpful as it reviews the basics and then probes just a little bit deeper into the subjects. One of my better school books :-)

It is a technical book with good illustrations and pictures. I would grade it as an intermediate level material. You can read this as a beginner but it would be a slow read as you'd have to get a understanding of all the concepts...It is like reading an upgraded version of college biology - first time it's a lot of studying, the second time you'll review and pic up on new little details...

Condition was a little rougher than advertised. Content is excellent. It is a textbook but seems to be about the only one of its kind
