Bushman, an American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)-certified exercise specialist, adroitly covers everything you ever wanted to know about healthy living. Contributions from a range of academics (many affiliated with the ACSM) distill the current thinking on nutrition and exercise for all ages and for adults with chronic conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. They discuss how to determine your current levels of fitness, create a graduated fitness plan and coordinate it with proper eating habits, and measure your progress and maintain your optimum level. Chapters include recommendations for those with special health and medical conditions, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and arthritis. VERDICT It's all here, without the catchy gimmicks that can so often send you down the wrong road. Anyone who is serious about getting in shape will want this guide.-Susan B.
