Nick Tiller (MRes, Ph.D.) is a senior researcher in exercise physiology at Harbor-UCLA and author of The Skeptic's Guide to Sports Science which was named one of Book Authority's "Best sports science books of all time". Tiller is a columnist at Skeptical Inquirer magazine, a columnist at Ultra-Running Magazine, and associate editor at the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism. For over a decade, Tiller has been scrutinizing the commercial health and wellness industry through the critical lens of scientific skepticism.
THE SKEPTIC'S GUIDE TO SPORTS SCIENCE
The global health and wellness industry is worth an estimated $4 trillion (USD). Lax regulations have led to commercial products being sold on baseless claims, pseudoscience, and unconvincing evidence. In "The Skeptic's Guide to Sports Science", Tiller puts the industry's most popular exercise products and services under the microscope but also delivers a treatise on critical thinking and scientific skepticism that challenges how we conceptualize the wellness industry. Compulsory reading for exercisers, academics, practitioners, and consumers of today's lucrative health market.
Tiller's information is accurate and supported by references, and his treatise on critical thinking is brilliant.
