First off, this is a GREAT book if you're looking for information on becoming physically healthier -BUT- potential buyers should know right off the bat that it's an academic textbook, or in other words, a classroom book. <BR/><BR/>If that turns you totally off, look elsewhere. However having said that, there are several good reasons why just about ANYBODY who's looking for wellness info will like this book. <BR/><BR/>One, is that it's written in a non-technical manner, so it's actually an easy, uncomplicated read. And two, it's comprehensive. Here's some of the info it covers: <BR/><BR/>-how to change behavior (you may know what's good for you, but that won't help unless you're motivated to change) <BR/><BR/>-it shows you how to assess your physical fitness <BR/><BR/>-it covers the major areas of fitness: cardiorespiratory fitness, flexibility, strength, and coping with stress <BR/><BR/>-it tell you how to deal with common injuries you might come across while trying to get into shape such as back problems (was a little disappointed there was nothing on rotator cuff injuries- suggest "Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff" for good info on that). <BR/><BR/>In sum, this book is very complete and probably is a little more of a do-it-yourself book than most realize. Based upon a lot of sound, scientific information, I recommend it to anyone who is getting started getting fit or simply wants a good wellness resource to refer to.
