Dave Barry’s Stay Fit and Healthy Until You’re Dead – Dave Barry

If you read the previous book review, you may have guessed that there will be a ‘few’ more Dave Barry books critiqued in this blog.
His style of humour is certainly quite direct, with little clever word-play or surrealism, but personally speaking, I occasionally like to dip into so called ‘low-brow’ humour and not have to actually engage to much of my brain to the book in hand.

This book takes a look at the fitness fads that go through cycles of being and in and out of fashion, and just what you should expect of them. Just don’t forget this is written by a funny man, not a personal trainer.
Whether your interest is in nutrition, running or weight lifting, Dave has it all covered, basically detailing why you should leave most fitness regimes until after Easter. (Just make sure it isn’t NEXT Easter 😉 )

If you know a fitness-nut, and think they need to take a step back from the seriousness of it all, I’d recommend giving them this book. (Read it first by all means, just try not to dribble any coffee stains on it when you laugh too hard – it will look obvious)
