Sweat Science, the book: coming on May 24

January 30th, 2011

Some exciting news to announce: the book I’ve been working on for the past three years, on the science of fitness, exercise and performance, will arrive in stores on May 24 of this year! The title is Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights? Fitness Myths, Training Truths, and Other Surprising Discoveries from the Science of Exercise. Yeah, it’s a mouthful…

It’ll be published in Canada (pre-order from Amazon here) by McClelland & Stewart, and in the U.S. (pre-order from Amazon here) by HarperCollins. Japanese and Korean editions are in the works, and hopefully other international editions will follow. Note that if you click on the Canadian links, they still have old title listed, which was “Sweat Science” instead of “Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights?” It’s the same book — the marketing people determined that having a question in the title would cunningly lure people into picking up the book in search of an answer.

Anyway, there will be lots more about the book in the months to come — plus details about promotions, speaking engagements, and even some giveaways! — but for starters I just wanted to get everyone to mark May 24 in the calendar. :)

    Rich, Barnee and Chris: thanks for the kind words, and thanks for following and contributing to the blog!

    Cynthia: Great question, and one I didn’t know the answer to myself. So I just went and checked — and great news, it’s already listed in the Kindle store, with a release date of May 24! http://t.co/06FDsPt
