We purchased this book hoping that it would help my son prepare for the Dantes Here's to Your Health exam. When we received it, we were disappointed to find out that it was more a book on fitness and nutrition rather than fitness and HEALTH. Fortunately, my son is very into fitness and sports nutrition, so he will likely still garner some gems from the book. We did NOT use it, however, to prepare for his exam as it offered a mere 15% of the information that he needed to learn.

Even though I had to buy this for a school course it was a very good health book I have gone back to many times. Worth the buy just to get a better understanding of health and your body. It's one I ended up keeping and putting in my library .

Had to purchase this book for a physical education class in college. We were permitted to buy the e-version, which was cheaper, so I did.

It has no pages, only arbitrary "locations" that vary in the thousands from arrow-click to arrow-click. Very disappointing way to spend money.

I guess this is a college text book for health and fitness majors. But I read it just for myself. Even though it is used as a text book, it is very easy to read and understand for anyone who enjoys a health life style. I has just enough science in it to make it more educational than your average fad health book, but not so much as to put someone off who is reading this without a professor to explain it. Great book for the lay person.

My college level fitness class required this but I had to drop the class and didn't get to utilize the book. I am certain it would be a great informational book for fitness....
