Reviews

Publisher's Weekly:  This illuminating and frequently humorous work will delight fitness mavens and make those pesky workout sessions more rewarding for everyone else. 

The Guardian:  "Does exercise help you lose weight? Does jogging wreck your knees? ... An evolutionary biologist provides entertainment and helpful tips" in this "entertaining and informative book"

Evolutionary Medicine and Public Health:  "These pages never plod...Lieberman has managed to demystify, and demythify, the swirl of evidence about exercise’s benefits and risks. While careful not to be explicitly prescriptive, Exercised uses empathy, humor, storytelling and careful reasoning to help readers come to their own conclusions."
