Review

""""Dr. Armstrong's book contains invaluable knowledge for the outdoor enthusiast or athlete who will be training, competing, or participating in strenuous activities under extreme conditions.""" Alberto SalazarFormer Marathon World Record HolderAmerican record holder: 5,000 and 10,000 meters """This very reasonably priced book by Dr. Larry Armstrong presents an updated and authoritative review of human exercise performance at the environmental extremes of heat, cold, high altitude, and hyperbaria (diving). In addition, this 300-page book provides useful information on the influence of air pollution, biological rhythms, time zone changes, and sleep loss on exercise performance. It is easy to read and a must purchase for undergraduate and graduate students in environmental physiology, interested athletes, and scientists concerned with these topics.""" Dr. Kent B. PandolfSenior Research ScientistU.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine "

5.0 out of 5 stars Performance in the Extremes Made Easy to Understand 28 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Lawrence Armstrong, one of the most respected exercise physiologists today, has done a wonderful job with bringing difficult topics back down to earth. In this book, Armstrong discusses everything from cold and windchill to altitude to heat, and how your body responds to these extremes.
The area of human performance and the effect the environment has on it is not always easy to understand. I think that Armstrong has done a great job in relaying pertinent information, especially on cold and altitude, in an easily understandable fashion. You don't have to be a physiologist yourself to learn from this book.
For anyone interested in human performance, from beginners to experts, this is a text you would want to have on your shelf.

2.0 out of 5 stars BORROW IT ! 4 May 2000
By Jack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is as far from "easy reading" as it gets!(I suggest a look at the sample pages) As a Personal Trainer, I was bombarded with details, rather than simply the results, of complicated studies and research. This book could have been summarized in 50 pages for the general public. The information is excellent but too scientific. Borrow it if you really need scientific specifics.
