A pure fitness novice may find this book useful as it truly lives up to its name of Fitness for Dummies. If you paid any attention during your high school or college PE courses or were active in any sport, you likely already know 60-90 percent of the information in this book. As a matter of fairness, I listened to the audio version, which appears to have left out several chapters that looked more interesting. Nevertheless, this book is only for the pure fitness novice, or perhaps, older Americans who would like to begin a fitness program after decades of inactivity. It also has a slight female slant--though not enough to deter males from reading it. I do believe the information to be accurate and helpful to the ultimate beginner.
