THE SKEPTIC'S GUIDE TO SPORTS SCIENCE
The global health and fitness industry is worth an estimated $4 trillion. Lax regulations have led to commercial products that are sold on baseless claims, pseudoscience, and unconvincing evidence. In "The Skeptic's Guide to Sports Science", Tiller puts the industry's most popular sports products and practices under the microscope but also delivers a treatise on critical thinking and scientific skepticism that is compulsory reading for exercisers, academics, practitioners, and consumers of today's lucrative health & fitness industry.
Tiller's information is accurate and supported by references, and his treatise on critical thinking is brilliant.
