'A very useful introduction to the key concepts in five main areas of study in sport and exercise science. The multi-disciplinary nature of the book is particularly attractive as it means that it can be used to support students studying a range of sport and exercise courses and modules. Furthermore, the chapters are concise, informative, written in an accessible style, and provide a good balance between theory and application to practice, making it a very interesting and relevant read' - Dr Lorraine Cale, Loughborough University

This book provides students and scholars with a fail-safe guide to the key concepts in the field of Sport & Exercise Science. Intelligently cross-referenced entries provide a sound map of the multi-disciplinary demands of sport related courses including physical and biological sciences, social science and education.

" Comprehensive

" Lucid
