The first edition of this book was published some years ago. The authors have made considerable revision and added a section on exercise for people over 40 and another on exercise for women.

Each of the chapters is supplied with an adequate bibliography. The book is of the utmost importance as a guide to all of those who work in association with modern athletics.
