Summary This book is written for the general reader who is interested in improving his own physical efficiency. It deals with the problems of fitness in terms of the efficient expenditure of human energy to produce maximum results with minimum effort. Scientifically sound information about the functioning of the human body and how it may be improved is presented in simple, nontechnical language. Ways in which the physical condition of the body may be improved by appropriate exercise are described, and modern principles of posture, movement, and relaxation for efficiency in work and play are discussed. Individual differences in structure and function are recognized, and all techniques for evaluation of posture and movement are adapted to individual use. -from Preface
