The graphics in the textbook are appropriate, the diction is solid, and there is enough margin space for personal notes (huge plus for me). There are TONS of studies that are cited in thi textbook that are fascinating, and the authors cover some in further detail. If there is anyone interested in the inner workings of how psychology and exercise relate to each other, this is a phenomenal starting point.
