I learnt nothing new here, not surprising given that I have read so much on the subject. However I found the booklet a good review of what is currently known as well as a "reality contact" both as to how valuable exercies is and what volumes an older Body can tolerate.

As an out-of-shape man in my forties who has never had a regular exercise programme and has tried and failed on a number of occasions working out in a gym, the last time having to abandon training due to doing too much too soon and getting injured, I actually learned a great deal from this book. It has also inspired me to take action, this time with a lot more insight into what to do, what not to do, when, how often and why.

A number of quibbles, though, and that is why I am giving four stars and not five:

Book Production
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.

Jargon
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.
