A New Scientist best book of 2021

Shortlisted for the 'Sports Performance Book of the Year' Award for 2022

Did you know that walking can improve your cognitive skills? That strengthening your muscular core reduces anxiety? That light stretching can combat a whole host of mental and bodily ailments, from stress to inflammation? We all know that exercise changes the way you think and feel. But scientists are just starting to discover exactly how it works.

Hailed as a 'delight' by The New York Times and 'fascinating' by Women's Health, Caroline Williams explores the emerging science of how movement opens up a hotline to our minds. Interviewing researchers and practitioners around the world, Move! reveals how you can work your body to improve your mind. As we emerge from over a year's worth of lockdowns, there is no better time to take control of how you think and feel.

MEDIA REVIEWS

In this rigorously reported and entertaining account, Williams offers a genuinely new perspective on the links between how we move and how we think and feel - Alex Hutchinson, author, Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance

Move! is science writing at its absolute best: lucid, informative, authoritative, fascinating - and very very important - Guy Claxton, author, Intelligence In The Flesh

A letter to an "I think, therefore I am" culture that knows our bodies need exercise, but imagines our minds as somehow separate ... Even if you already "get" that exercise makes you feel better, Move! enhances the picture so you can see how the researched details fit together - Katy Bowman, author, Move Your DNA
