I'd recommend it to anyone who love sport, and has the will to learn about this interesting field.
Now, Sport Physiology is not my expertise. If you're already knowledgeable in this field, you may not learn as much as l did.
This book is the opposite of all those endless magazine and internet exercise tips. The authors have themselves tested and compiled the best experimentally tested findings on the causes and mechanics of exercise and the human body. Why does muscle get stronger? Can you get faster? How? Why?
Book is long and can be a bit technical. It is a textbook on exercise. It is not the end of the topic. But if you want to look at and learn about sports from the perspective of tested results, written by maybe the best teachers and minds in the field: get this book. Maximum recommend.
The book presents a great deal of technical information, but it uses a lot of modern visual techniques to help that information go down easy. The book is full of charts, graphs, diagrams, and pictures which are great help to a visually oriented person such as myself. I found other visual elements very attractive, such as layout, text boxes ("in focus" and "in review" summaries), appropriate typefaces, and so forth.
The authors go to some effort to make the material interesting and manage to convey their excitement about their topics to the reader. I highly recommend this book, whether you are a student or an educated layperson wanting to become even more educated on the most important subject of exercise physiology.
