"Psychology can work in at least two ways, as this book clearly shows. First, we can gain psychological benefits from physical activity. This is encapsulated in the early chapters on quality of life, stress management, self-perceptions, and mood. Second, we need to understand how to assist people to become more active. This is where chapters on theories and models, motivation, determinants, and strategies come in. [. . .] In addition, psychology is also about behaviour change across different groups and settings. The authors deal with this by writing on young people, older adults, and gender issues. One size does not fit all." -- From the foreword by Stuart J H Biddle, Professor of Active Living & Public Health, Victoria University
