Written at a graduate level, the Second Edition of ACSM's Advanced Exercise Physiologyenables experienced students to develop an in-depth understanding of exercise physiology along with its related topics and applications. Both the immediate and long-term effects of exercise on individual body systems are described in detail, and the text emphasizes how each body system's physiological response to exercise is interdependent. Moreover, it examines how these physiological responses are affected by heat, cold, hypoxia, microgravity, rest, and hyperbaria. This Second Edition features a team of international authors and editors whose expertise spans general physiology, exercise physiology, and research. Together, they have substantially revised, updated, and reorganized the text to incorporate feedback from both instructors and students.

Professor of Exercise Science October 17, 2012
This is truly a remarkable book. It looks like the author's did not hold back from covering the latest information in detail so that the graduate student or gifted upper level undergraduate can become up to date on how a physiological system responds to exercise. The chapters are all organized identically in terms of layout and there are questions the student should ponder to make sure they really understand the material. This book is invaluable when a department or program does not have an in house expert in a certain area but the program needs its students to have a very good understanding of all systems.
