In the later sections of the book, i literally skimmed thr' this kind of mindless rant and only read technical sections about exercise, nutrition and technique - which are actually very informational and explained in a manner so that anyone can understand the complexity of the science.
after reading all her books, one can feel undertone of superiority - I am the only exercise physiologist in India who knows this, or telling you this - this and the constant use of hindi is a major distraction.
I am not saying dont buy this book - it has lot of useful information. But i kind of made my mind not to trust everything written in the book and do some trail and error. Unlike earlier book, "Dont lose your mind, lose your weight" - when i believed in the core message of the book.
"The primary activity to recommend to someone who has been sedentary for a long period of time is walking. This recommendation is consistent with the introductory material on health benefits, and it deals with the issue of injuries associated with more strenuous physical activity In addition, there is good reason to believe that some subjects, especially the obese and the elderly, may use walking as their primary form of exercise. The emphasis at this stage is to simply get people active by providing an activity that can be done anywhere, anytime, and with anyone, young or old. In this way, the number of possible interfering factors that can result in the discontinuance of the exercise is reduced."
Majorty of people who are obese lead a sedentary life. Therefore
1)A sedentary person needs to go through a health status screening before participating in exercise.
2) Exercise programs for previously sedentary persons should start with low-Intensity activities (walking), and the person should not
progress until he or she can walk about four miles comfortably
3) The optimal characteristics of an exercise program are
intensity = 60% to 80% V0 2 max;
frequency = three to four times per week;
duration = minutes needed to expend about 200 to 300 kcal.
Overall It is a good book to know and understand the basics behind Endurance & Strength fitness performance. It is worth adding in to your library and of course worth following it for life!

Positives about the book:
1. Busts a lot of commonly believed myths with clear reasoning
2. Will get you to start working out as the book states only modest demands for a normal person to stay fit
3. Will help you filter the plethora of information available in public domain or even those free advice given by many self-proclaimed "fitness experts" that you meet in daily life.
4. Finally, the style of writing makes it easy to read
1. After reading the book, one might feel, "So, what should I do now finally to lose weight? or What should I do starting tomorrow?" Rujuta has answered these questions at various places. You might have to go back and stitch the pieces together to get an answer to these questions.
2. Some people who believe only in certain kind of exercises might get offended as I can read in the reviews.
3. People who are not conversant with the terms (even though she has clearly explained everything before using them extensively) can find the usage of scientific terms a bit overwhelming.
But, I personally feel that there is no reason to feel offended. We have certain believes because some people told that "it worked for them" and also because you can clearly see with your eyes that it has worked for them. It can also be because, one might like only certain kind of exercises.
Finally, I would like to thank Rujuta for this piece of work. It is really an eye-opener as far as exercises and associated myths are concerned.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wishes to know more about exercise and how to stay fit.
