Nick Tiller, Ph.D. is an exercise physiologist at Harbor-UCLA, an award-winning author, and a columnist for Skeptical Inquirer and Ultra-Running Magazine.
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.
