A fascinating look at the current science about the impact on the mind and the brain that various forms of body movement and exercise can have, this book is full of helpful and convincing information about how one can live a better and healthier life. It looks at why we move in the first place, examines in turn walking, physical strength, dance, posture, stretching, breathing etc. It's amusingly and accessibly written, not all of it will take with any reader, but it's a reminder that doing anything is better than doing nothing!
