7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Justin M. James on October 9, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an outstanding book. It is a collection of short essays, ranging from a few paragraphs to a few pages, organized by theme. They cover a huge number of topics, many of which it never occured to me to think about. It ditches all of the gym rat "bro science" and refutes it with hard, cold facts, accumulated over decades by scientists and athletes. While some of the essays are rather dense (few people need page after page of proof that isokinetic training is impossible), and some of them address trends that have passed some time ago, the sheer amount of useful information in this book is overwhelming. If you want to understand the science behind exercise and physical training, and not just follow the misguided pack that got "educated" through glossy supplement company backed magazines and two hour online certification courses, this is the book for you. If you have a vested interest in selling what calls itself "fitness" or cannot be open minded that perhaps what you think you know about "fitness" is not grounded in truth, don't bother reading it.
