Pietro Tonino
This is a monograph dealing with aerobic health and fitness issues. This book discusses aerobic fitness and interaction between aerobic fitness and various sport activities. This book is intended primarily for exercise scientists, and the author appears to be a credible authority on this subject. Illustrations in this book are almost nonexistent, and the organization is confusing. This book has a limited audience. Exercise physiologists may find it interesting, but it does not appear to have a wide audience.
