Format: Paperback
Although I'm not a physician, I read this book from cover to cover, and now I approach life and exercise in a wonderful new way. I've increased my morning exercise rituals, and as I go thru each day, lines from this book urge me to walk greater distances, and to think of new and exciting ways to bring exercise into my life. I'd like to see this in a form for the lay person so that I could give out copies to my folk dance, and square dance partners as well as all friends and family members. Congratulations to Edward Phillips and Steven Jonas.

Straightforward... maybe a tiny tad wonkish, Jonas but lays out the massive benefits exercise has from tip to toe.
