From the reviews:
"This book a significant contribution to the literature. ... It is appropriate for scientists who have more than a rudimentary understanding of both the exercise and neurobiological sciences. ... A PhD or MD who specializes in either exercise science or the neurosciences may find this book useful for research designs. ... This is a unique book in the fields of exercise science and neuroscience, providing a means to delve into the neurobiology of human exercise." (Erik H. VanIterson, Doody's Review Service, September, 2012)
