Product description

Review

"I wish I had had this textbook as a student – it would have made learning about the health benefits of physical activity much easier! By housing a comprehensive variety of topics in a single volume, the textbook is a wonderful resource for anyone, whether student or exercise or health professional, wanting to find out more about physical activity and health."

- I-Min Lee, MBBS, MPH, ScD; Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School. Associate Professor of Epidemiology, Harvard School of Public Health

 

"Drs. Stensel and Hardman have prepared an excellent second edition to their book on physical activity and health. The book is comprehensive, the literature review is extensive and up to date, and is well written. The book covers topics relevant to persons across the age range, from children to older adults. The closing chapter presents a strong rationale for the urgent need to incorporate physical activity policies and promotion into public health strategies." 

- Steven N. Blair, PED; Professor, Arnold School of Public Health, University of South Carolina. Former president of the American College of Sports Medicine

 

"Anyone who seeks to examine the body of evidence linking physical activity and health should consult this splendid book...At once authoritative and a pleasure to read, it is clearly the result of many years spent in research and teaching."

- Professor Ronald J. Maughan; Secretary of the Nutrition Working Group of the International Olympic Committee

"This is an excellent text, which is much needed in the field of physical activity and health. The authors scrupulously examine the case for exercise with the most rigorous evidence from around the world. This makes the text a valuable resource for information about physical activity and health for students and established researchers worldwide."

- Professor Steve Bird; School of Human Movement, Recreation and Performance, Victoria University, Melbourne
