A number of quibbles, though, and that is why I am giving four stars and not five:
This appears to be a self-published book - nothing wrong with that. I am a self-published author myself. But it contains some annoying slips which a professional publishing company probably would have caught.
1) The table of contents is hard to read as everything is underlined.
2) There are at least three occasions where a section heading is left orphaned at the foot of a page and the main body appears on the following page.
3) Similarly with some tables in the appendices. If the author has just put one table per page, this awkward splitting up of tables of information could have been avoided.
The author, a former United States Marine Corps Colonel, is obviously an expert on his subject - the theory as well as the practice. However, he uses a lot of big scientific and medical words, particularly early on in the book, without explaining them most of the time for the benefit of his intended readership - out of shape men over 40 just like me who don't exercise. So much of this jargon was very new to me and over my head.
At the very least he should have included a glossary. Better still would have been to explain the terms as he went along.Read more ›
