  • Endlessly fascinating and full of surprises. Lieberman strikes a perfect balance of scholarship, wit and enthusiasm for his subject. This is easily one of my books of the year

    Bill Bryson, bestselling author of The Body
  • Myth-busting, illuminating, brilliant - Lieberman will completely change the way you think about your body

    Professor Alice Roberts, presenter of Our Incredible Human Journey
  • Entertaining and informative... The book is full of helpful tips - you'll build muscle faster by extending muscles under load rather than contracting them; the kind of chair you sit on doesn't matter as long as you strengthen your back muscles and move regularly - conveyed in a humorous and sympathetic style

    Steven Poole, Guardian
  • Part user manual for the human body and part detective story exploring our evolution, Exercised will change the way you think about exercise, diet and your own wellbeing

    Neil Shubin, author of Your Inner Fish
  • A surprising, erudite and revelatory look at the natural history of physical activity and why exercise is both so necessary for us and so unnatural. A must-read for anyone with a working body and mind

    Gretchen Reynolds, New York Times-bestselling author of The First 20 Minutes
  • A fascinating read, and one that could nudge you toward a healthier (and longer) life

    Amby Burfoot, editor of Runner's World
  • Excellent - well written, amusing and touching on the lives of all who read it

    Richard Leakey, FRS
  • Eye-opening, mind-expanding and potentially body-shaping

    Paul Wilson, Men's Health
