In this book there are outlined a number of exercises which have been planned to aid in keeping the body supple. It is also stated that they will be useful in preventing obesity. The material is clearly and simply presented, with a number of well taken photographs. Unfortunately, it is difficult for individuals to get into the habit of doing such exercises in a routine way. Furthermore, any exercises tend to increase appetite and produce overeating, with the result in gain rather than loss in weight. However, for those who wish a detailed outline of exercises for the various muscles of the body, this book will be found useful.
