Editorial Reviews

Edward M. Heath
This is a second edition of an undergraduate exercise physiology text previously published in 1994. The authors have made substantial changes from the first edition and go to great lengths to include practical information and to present material in a style that holds the reader's interest. This book is designed for a one-semester undergraduate exercise physiology course with an emphasis on practical information in a non-research-oriented format. It is predominantly targeted at undergraduate students in exercise science but will also be an excellent resource for individuals working in all aspects of the exercise and wellness field. All three authors have been true leaders in the field for several decades. All the basic areas in exercise physiology are covered, and the authors have done a great job tying in nutritional aspects as well as aerobic, anaerobic, and resistance training. The colorful figures and tables are excellent and are a great help to students. Although the authors purposefully use a non-research format, it would be helpful to have some more of the material cited within the chapters. A chapter on pediatric issues would also serve many students. This is an excellent undergraduate text that is a standard in the field. There is not a better exercise physiology text for practical information on training and the nutritional aspects of exercise.
Pietro Tonino
This textbook of exercise physiology is written by three authors. This book is intended to be used by students, and the authors fulfill these objectives. This is a textbook for exercise physiology students. The authors are well respected in their fields. The quantity and quality of the illustrations are outstanding. They make the topics in the text easy to understand. The book has an excellent appearance. This is an excellent text for exercise physiology that would make a good reference text.

Booknews
This flashy textbook includes colorful tables and diagrams and emphasizes both practical applications and the interrelationships among energy intake, energy production during exercise, and physiologic systems that support physical activity and training responsiveness. Sections cover the historical roots of exercise physiology and the basics of the scientific method; nutrition and energy transport; the fundamental physiologic support systems; the application of the scientific principles of exercise training; factors affecting physiological function, energy transfer, and exercise performance; and optimizing body composition, aging, and health- related exercise benefits.
