Summary

This carefully developed new book is appropriate for readers with varied backgrounds and learning styles. The authors incorporate numerous integrative features-such as systems integration charts and an integrative exercise physiology chapter-to help readers take what they learn on the cellular, chemical, organ, and system levels and apply it to the body as a whole. This technique weaves a relevant, concrete body systems integration theme throughout the book, helping readers to build on their knowledge. For college instructors and students.
