Product description


"""Physical Activity Epidemiology "is a wide-ranging, absolutely current, and commonsense guide to health in terms of physical exercise, as viewed from population-based studies. From prelude to postlude, the book is comprehensive and detailed, yet it is pleasurable to read, to contemplate over, and to reread as a reference text."""
Ralph S. Paffenbarger, Jr.
