"Many of us have been told not to exercise if we have asthma or suffer from allergies. In this book, written in conjunction with the American College of Sports Medicine, Briner (medical director, Sports Medicine Ctr.; director, Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship, Lutheran General Hosp., Park Ridge, IL) shows that exercise does not hurt allergy and asthma sufferers and may actually help them. Asserts Briner, “No allergic disease qualifies as an excuse to avoid exercise.” As with the other excellent titles in the “Action Plan for Health “ series, this book is logically organized, provides useful graphics, and offers a review of key concepts at the end of each chapter. Briner opens with a useful discussion of the physiological benefits of exercise and then shows how the physiological changes gained from exercise can improve the quality of life for those suffering from allergies or asthma. He then lays out guidelines for implementing and adhering to a well-designed exercise program. Briner cites scientific research when appropriate and supplies references for those wanting to access the primary literature on specific topics. An excellent resource that fits the bill; highly recommended for college, medical, school, consumer, and public libraries."
