Format: Paperback
Lawrence Armstrong, one of the most respected exercise physiologists today, has done a wonderful job with bringing difficult topics back down to earth. In this book, Armstrong discusses everything from cold and windchill to altitude to heat, and how your body responds to these extremes.
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.

Format: Paperback
This book is as far from "easy reading" as it gets!(I suggest a look at the sample pages) As a Personal Trainer, I was bombarded with details, rather than simply the results, of complicated studies and research. This book could have been summarized in 50 pages for the general public. The information is excellent but too scientific. Borrow it if you really need scientific specifics.
