I've always been in pretty good shape but now I'm interested in exercising more and more regularly. The American public is far too sedentary. Exercise won't cure everything but it makes a lot of diseases such as diabetes, depression, hypertention, arthitis, osteoporosis, insomnia, (the list goes on) easier to treat. This book lays out the scientific information on why exercise is good for our brains and bodies. It also gives you a sense of how to start and accomplish a successful exercise program. I agree that the book can be somewhat repetitive, however, I find that the best way to get my patients to do what is good for them is consistent drilling into their brains.
