    Inhaltsangabe

    Brought to you by Penguin.

    The myth-busting science behind our modern attitudes to exercise: what our bodies really need, why it matters and its effects on health and wellbeing.

    In industrialised nations, our sedentary lifestyles have contributed to skyrocketing rates of obesity and diseases like diabetes. A key remedy, we are told, is exercise - voluntary physical activity for the sake of health. However, most of us struggle to stay fit, and our attitudes to exercise are plagued by misconceptions, finger-pointing and anxiety.

    But, as Daniel Lieberman shows in Exercised, the first book of its kind by a leading scientific expert, we never evolved to exercise. 

    We are hardwired for moderate exertion throughout each day, not triathlons or treadmills. Drawing on over a decade of high-level scientific research and eye-opening insights from evolutionary biology and anthropology, Lieberman explains precisely how exercise can promote health; debunks persistent myths about sitting, speed, strength and endurance; and points the way towards more enjoyable and physically active living in the modern world.

    enlightening and inspirational

    I loved the combination of biological, anthropological and historical research used to explain what, how, why and when exercising is necessary. Thank you Mr. Lieberman.

    very detailed

    it's my second book of Mr. Lieberman.
    he explained very understandably why we need exercise theses days.

    for me it was an easy to listen book. The speaker was well performing.

    thumbs up

    Unglaublich informativ und motivierend

    Ich bin allgemein Fan von informativen Büchern dieser Art. War mir anfangs zwar noch etwas unsicher inwiefern das mir neue Erkentnisse zeigt aber wurde mit der Zeit eines besseren belehrt. Sehr sympathischer Sprecher an dessen Dialekt man sich zum Glück auch schnell gewöhnt. Werde mir sehr wsl fürs Kompendium und Passagen nochmal lesen das Buch dazu holen.

    Must read for everyone

    Very well written and concise. It links evolution and exercise, and continuously refers to scientific studies. I would recommend to all readers for all ages.

    long drawn-out, not well suited for an audiobook

    Don't get me wrong, this book is pretty good in terms of its scientific content. The author is careful, staying scientifically skeptic, and he provides A LOT of details for every aspect related to physical activity and any aspect you could think of that is related to those aspects, and then even more. However, the author often tends to digress (sometimes to a confusing length), and occasionally steps into territory that he is not an expert in, which leaves a bitter aftertaste.
    Furthermore, the information he provides and the many studies he brings up make this book not well suited to be listened to as an audiobook. You would be much better off buying this as a physical or e-book to follow the research yourself, if you are interested in the science.
    Lastly, I'm sorry but the speaker - in his attempt to sound neutral and impartial - sounds completely emotionless and has an incredibly boring tone of voice. It may be just me, maybe others don't mind, but to me this emotionless and boring way of reading the book out loud makes this book NOT enjoyable to listen to, especially not for 13 hours.
