Reviewer's Quote: The Fun Facts may be my favorite part of the book. All of them were very interesting and different. They are always good for discussion and give the reader a slight break from the material but still keep it relevant to the subject. - Robert Maxwell. M.A. Exercise Physiology; ACSM CPT; Director of Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology; Keiser University, Daytona Beach Campus.
