With a concern over the lack of exercises performed by the average person in the United States, Drs. Kraus and Raab have developed the thesis that specific diseases may be produced, or, in any event, made significantly worse, by this "under-exercise." The conditions stressed in this book are back pains, cardiac problems, obesity, and emotional instability. Anyone agreeing with their premise will find much corroborating evidence and a stimulating treatise. Even where the conclusions are based upon empirical data, one cannot help being impressed with the importance of adequate regular exercising for its therapeutic and prophylactic results.
