- Version intégrale
In this myth-busting book, Daniel Lieberman, professor of human evolutionary biology at Harvard University and a pioneering researcher on the evolution of human physical activity, tells the story of how we never evolved to exercise - to do voluntary physical activity for the sake of health. Using his own research and experiences throughout the world, Lieberman recounts without jargon how and why humans evolved to walk, run, dig, and do other necessary and rewarding physical activities while avoiding needless exertion.
Reinforces the message why we should exercise

I'm a 30 something that's always had a vested interest in health. As I've aged I've been keenly aware of all the contradictory information that's out there. E.g. Walking is the magic bullet to weight loss; no just kidding it will make you gain more weight and you're just spinning your tires.
The authors do a wonderful job of separating the facts from the fiction. with the added benefit of showing their work.
Anyone who is curious about: our evolutionary biology, biomechanics, and health need this book in their library.
Great book period. Also the doctor interviews quite well. You can find the interview on CBC radio one. It's how I was roped in. Enjoy.
