Well done.' - Rod K. Dishman, University of Georgia, USA 'It is the emerging relationships which characterise this book. The editors' decision to break new ground is richly rewarded.' - The Sport and Exercise Scientist '... moves our knowledge beyond just a broad and superficial understanding. The editors have clearly affirmed the role that physical activity ... can play in enhancing individual and societal well being.' - Sport & Exercise Psychology Review 'Students will find this book stimulating in terms of developing research ideas and as a model for presenting data.' - Liz Cort, Nurse Researcher, Nursing Standard
