Steinhaus, my first teacher of physiology, is one of those rare combinations of men who can master technique, philosophy, vivid writing, inspiring teaching. This volume gathers together all his published works in physical education and health, much of it inaccessible to the average physician, school physician, coach, and teacher of physiology.

He has brought together studies concerning the physiologic response of body to exercises and to sports (he told me that man was far cheaper to study than animals—no need for special equipment, environment, keepers) and on the values and limitations of health education and its future possibilities. Enclosed are many heart-warming essays which appeared in local and national magazines to edify the public and its teachers. No one who is interested in health should be without this volume, which, is incidentally beautifully printed and bound.
