A straightforward, unpretentious statement of the principles which Mr. McGovern follows in his gymnasium. No fads about diet; no short cuts to reducing; no coddling of hypochondriacs. He touches superficially on the background of his present work, on his theories as to diet, exercise, rest, healthful living; as to the part exercise should play as corrective, curative, preventative. The last third of the book consists of specific instructions as to his series of exercises, with graphic pictures illustrating each exercise. For Mr. Average Man.
