"The authors have used several examples which demonstrate the application of the information being presented. This makes the information come to life and makes for a more readable and understandable text."
"I feel the authors, Hoeger and Hoeger, have made a positive contribution tot he field of physical fitness and wellness with this updated edition. In fact, I can honestly write that this book is one of the most enjoyable to read, yet informative, that I have seen for the purpose of serving as a college textbook."
"This text is an easy-to-read publication that uses visuals well. It translates scientific jargon into everyday language so the non-science major in the core curriculum wellness class is not at a disadvantage. There is excellent use of photographs, tables, figures, and text boxes to supplement the written descriptions. ... This text meets our needs better than any other wellness text, which is why we have adopted it for use in our classes over the last 8 years."
