Overview

Have you ever wanted to compete in the Olympics? Maybe you did as a child, only to learn how difficult the years of training and commitment are. But not all success in sport is the result of hard work. Some athletes are actually genetically inclined to be better at certain sports. This genetic baseline physiology is the topic of David Epstein's The Sports Gene: Inside the Science of Extraordinary Athletic Performance.

This book will help you understand which sports you might be physiologically well-adapted for, along with how much you can improve. You'll discover what genetics has to do with how much you enjoy exercise, and why that might make it harder - or easier - for you to get to the gym.
