요약
"This highly engaging landmark work, a natural history of exercise--by the author of the best seller The Story of the Human Body--seeks to answer a fundamental question: were you born to run or rest The first three parts of Exercised roughly follow the evolutionary story of human physical activity and inactivity, even as each chapter shatters a particular myth about exercise. Because we cannot understand physical activity without understanding its absence, Part One begins with physical inactivity. What are our bodies doing when we take it easy, including when we sit or sleep? Part Two explores physical activities that require speed, strength, and power, such as sprinting, lifting, and fighting. Part Three surveys physical activities that involve endurance, such as walking, running, or dancing, as well as their effect on aging. Part Four considers how anthropological and evolutionary approaches can help us exercise better in the modern world. How can we more effectively manage to exercise, and in what ways? To what extent, how, and why do different types and durations of exercise help prevent or treat the major diseases that are likely to make us sick and kill us? --

대니얼 리버먼(지은이)

하버드대학교 인간진화생물학과 교수이자 개체및진화생물학과 겸임교수다. 우리 몸의 구조와 기능이 왜 그리고 어떻게 지금과 같이 진화했는지에 대해 광범위한 연구를 진행하고 있으며 특히 인간 두개골의 진화와 맨발 달리기에 관한 연구로 유명하다. 지금까지 100편이 넘는 논문을 발표했고 대부분이 《네이처》와 《사이언스》에 실렸다. 저서로는 『인간 머리의 진화(The Evolution of the Human Head)』가 있다.
