Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: James R. Scott, BS, MA, PES (Oregon Health and Science University)
Description: This is an extensive revision of a comprehensive exercise physiology text designed for the undergraduate or entry level graduate student with anatomy/physiology prerequisites. The research-supported material will prompt students to keep it for future exercise-related study.
Purpose: The authors' intent is to present exercise physiology to students in diverse curricula. This text is for students in broad-based programs offering a general curriculum for as long as possible prior to specialization.
Audience: The intended audience is the upper level undergraduate and entry level graduate students in multidisciplinary programs that require fundamental understanding of exercise physiology. It is designed to capitalize on the diversified interests of these students. It presents varied applications to an audience comprised of students in diversified majors. The varied experiences of the authors complement this broad-based, comprehensive approach.
Features: The authors make a significant contribution to the original work by revising text graphics and upgrading illustrations. The "Featured Box Readings" provide unique clinical, advanced topic, and coaching applications that are thought-provoking and motivational. This text offers supplemental materials from the Internet, instructor's manual, software, video, and slides that are available to enhance learning opportunities.
Assessment: This is the sixth and most significant revision of Fox's original textbook in exercise physiology. The contributions of the current authors, as well as previous contributors, are obvious in this presentation of well-organized, sequenced, and documented content. The topics are arranged in a manner that leads the reader through a developmental sequence in exercise physiology. It is a multiple use text that can be retained as a resource over successive classes. It is aimed at students with diverse program interests and multiple learning styles. As such it makes a valuable contribution to texts in exercise physiology.
