""This very reasonably priced book by Dr. Larry Armstrong presents an updated and authoritative review of human exercise performance at the environmental extremes of heat, cold, high altitude, and hyperbaria (diving). In addition, this 300-page book provides useful information on the influence of air pollution, biological rhythms, time zone changes, and sleep loss on exercise performance. It is easy to read and a must purchase for undergraduate and graduate students in environmental physiology, interested athletes, and scientists concerned with these topics.""

The area of human performance and the effect the environment has on it is not always easy to understand. I think that Armstrong has done a great job in relaying pertinent information, especially on cold and altitude, in an easily understandable fashion. You don't have to be a physiologist yourself to learn from this book.
For anyone interested in human performance, from beginners to experts, this is a text you would want to have on your shelf.
