Review:

The most readable book about this topic that I know! I read it with unabated interest. Ths author does not necessarily dwell on thorny issues, but instead brilliantly states what is necessary to comprehend the concepts and the sometimes complex theories in this field.

A great little text...The author has produced a streamlined but incisively and remarkably up-to-date look at a learning and conditioning.
