    This is main useful for very active men - including the Navy SEAL people, of course - but even though it is so, you can still gain some information from here, and a view into the fitness/nutrition world of the men this guide gives guidance about the two areas (which is why there is also information useful for missions in different types of places, etc.) There are some black and white pictures and (blurrish) photos, figures, tables, and appendixes.

The book is in two parts: fitness comes first, the nutrition. Fitness part talks about different forms of fitness (like running, swimming, weights, stretching, calisthenics - of the last one I have read a book about some years ago), injuries, age limitations, good/bad supplements, programs, stuff for missions etc. Nutrition side talks (besides usual things) about things like food intake in adverse conditions, during missions, importance of fluids, field rations, and supplements. Although I'm not in the target group this book is aimed for, it still gave me some good information, and I noted some pages for later use. It took me a moment to realise what the fins were about - not on the back, but on your feet *lol* Now I also have even less desire to climb mountains; I'll rather watch or read about it. The nutrition part I got the most tips out of (including vitamins and minerals) out of the two. The text was spread loosely on pages, which made a quicker read even when it got boring. So, in the end, this was worth it, and one interesting view into one kind of world.

    Just crazy enough for me (no pilates in the Kitchen, flat abs in 10 min. a day stuff wanted) but this is all information for men because "women are not welcome in the Navy Seal community." A**holes...that's because you know we would kick your butts.

    2.5 stars. I read this book over a decade ago. It was written by a team of 6 M.D.’s, 2 PhD’s and is a 500 page behemoth. That said, this book is way too technical to be practical for everyday ‘civilians’ (extremely dull to boot – it’s essentially an academic textbook). Could have been much more useful if condensed to half the size, and had more and better photos/ illustrations. Biggest takeaways: -introduced me to a handful of great new stretching movements (three dozen in total) which are all pa 2.5 stars. I read this book over a decade ago.

    Book written by academics. Extensive medical details and precautions that I have not seen in other fitness books. Many useful metrics and how to deal with minor injuries (strains, sprains, overuse).
