Bruce W. Perry's Fitness for Geeks (O'Reilly Media)

"There's more to being a geek than most people think when they hear the word", says O'Reilly Media—which is why the publishing company sees no sign of irony in the title of its new book Fitness for Geeks: Real Science, Great Nutrition, and Good Health by author Bruce W. Perry. The book is a treatise on the science behind one's health and exercise routine, which O'Reilly says will appeal to a broad audience of scientists, programmers and people with inquisitive minds who want to experiment with health the way they tinker with technology. By applying the same technical approach they use to debug software or hack hardware, readers will learn both what to do and why it works. Whether they have an established exercise routine and want to dig deeper to realize the physiology behind it, or if they're just looking for a way to get away from the computer to exercise in a manner that speaks to them, this book helps readers discover a new method for building and maintaining fitness and a healthy lifestyle.
