Dr. David Pargman, professor emeritus at Florida State University, is an expert on the psychology of exercise. He is the perfect person to write this much-needed book, blending humor, personal experience and a deep knowledge of the subject. As an avid and over 60 exerciser who continues to enjoy a healthy regimen of jogging, stretching and strength training, he is able to provide inspiration and encouragement to readers. Boomercise: Exercising as You Age will prove to be the definitive book on exercise for this under-served market.
