Reviewer: Erik H VanIterson, M.S., M.Bio(University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology)
Description: This is the ninth edition of what is considered the gold standard for exercise physiologists and sports physicians who are actively involved in practicing and teaching exercise prescription and testing.
Purpose: The objective is to present scientifically based guidelines for exercise testing and prescription. The aims of this book are essential for the field of exercise physiology, and it sets a high standard for all exercise professionals. As in previous editions, the many contributing authors achieve the task of providing informative and easy-to-read material.
Audience: This book is appropriate for all professionals actively involved in exercise testing and prescription for a variety of populations. It may be pertinent for exercise physiologists and sports physicians working in the field to keep them current with the latest guidelines when working with their patients and or clientele.
Features: Chapters flow logically, but are also self-contained to permit readers to jump to specific areas of interest. The book is filled with helpful figures and tables that highlight key points and help to reinforce concepts.
Assessment: This edition is updated with the latest peer-reviewed references to support the statements and theory throughout. The authors are highly regarded in their respective fields and their expertise contributes tremendously to the quality of this book.
