One of the best books on fitness and health I've read. The authors discuss why we grow and why we decay -- has a lot to do with our precarious life on the open savanah in Africa. Exercise signals our primitive brain that it is time for the hunt -- build bone, build muscle, build circulatory capacity, get ready for action. Inactivity tells our primitive brain that winter is upon us -- slow down, eat a lot, shut down unnecessary functions, etc. So in evolutionary terms, our modern, sedentary life is constant "winter." The book is full of practical advice and is entertaining -- I think the combo of patient/physician is a great one.
