How to Think about Exercise - Damon Young

Philosopher Damon Young explores how physical exertion shapes the body and mind in How to Think About Exercise. Short essays posit how pushing our bodies can create integrity, resilience, consistency and humility, and how these qualities bring value into our lives and into our conceptions of self. Ben Franklin swam, Abraham Lincoln wrestled, Alan Turing ran long distances, and you could benefit from a trip to the gym. You'll think better, and bigger. Or open this book to the introduction and meet Chad. That takes no effort.
