For" Physio-Techno Junkies" By A Customer This is a well-researched book written by two exercise physiologists with contributions from scientists and University Professors-and it SOUNDS it! Not to discredit the authors but it's NOT what i would call "user-friendly".Its presentation is too technical and phrasiology too scientific.You have to read mainy lines several times over just to understand what the heck they're saying.It's MORE OFA DISSERTATION FROM PhD'S FOR OTHER PhD'S at a BIO-CHEMISTRY SYMPOSIUM. It's not meant for the average person or novice who simply wants to enhance their knowledge of sports supplements.This book, as good as it may sound, will NOT be a welcome addition to your library-you'll end up wanting to give it away or sell it to re-coup your cost.You're FAR BETTER OFF purchasing "THE ERGOGENICS EDGE" by DR. MELVIN WILLIAMS (ALL his books are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)-comprehensive, detailed and easy to understand."SPORTS SUPPLEMENTS" will NOT give you the edge you're looking for. Stick with (Melvin)WILLIAMS,(Edmund)BURKE and (Daniel)GASTELU. TRUST ME!!! 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. A Must Have if your into Athletics and Sports Nutrition By Douglas Kalman Finally, a book that is up-to-date with respect to providing information and explanations behind the science of supplementation as well as diet. This book, put together by Drs Antonio and Stout should be on your bookshelf if you workout, run, want to learn more about enhancing athletic performance or your health in general.No hyperbole, no ties to products, a great book for higher level undergrads and grad students alike. Go get it! 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. A MUST BUY By A Customer If you need to know accurate information on suppliments this book is a MUST.
