Psychology of Physical Activity, co-authored by Dr. Guy Faulkner

The positive benefits of physical activity for physical and mental health are now widely acknowledged, yet levels of physical inactivity continue to be a major concern throughout the world. Understanding the psychology of physical activity has therefore become an important issue for scientists, health professionals and policy-makers alike as they address the challenge of behaviour change.

Now publishing in a fully revised, updated and expanded fourth edition, Psychology of Physical Activity by Stuart J. H. Biddle, Nanette Mutrie, Trish Gorely and Guy Faulkner is still the only textbook to offer a full survey of the evidence base for theory and practice in exercise psychology, and the only textbook that explains how to interpret the quality of the research evidence.
