Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Jeff Schneider, MS (University of Delaware)
Description: This book begins with muscle physiology then progresses to the interaction of the motornueron and the muscle unit. The author then presents the basic mechanism of fatigue involving the nervous system response to strength and endurance training.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an overview of neuromuscular involvement in physical activity and how the neuromuscular system responds to strength and endurance training. The book meets the author's objectives, but these objectives are also met in chapters in other books.
Audience: As the author states, the book is written for individuals who have a basic understanding of neuromuscular physiology. This understanding is essential before using the book. The author's background gives credibility to this book.
Features: The book presents a subject that is covered in chapters in other books. The artwork is limited to black-and-white figures and gives the book a boring appearance. Color needs to be added.
Assessment: This would be a good supplemental text. The information presented in the book is good. The artwork needs to be improved, especially with today's technology.
