The selection of topics/chapter are appropriate and common for a introductory wellness course

Concepts within the chapters are appropriate and preferred such as the dimensions of wellness and the transtheoretical model of change. I also appreciated a chapter dedicated to stress and stress management. This isn’t always included and is believed to be an important topic.

Content is accurate, clear and straight forward. Biased information was not recognized and overall was error free. The one issue and why a “4” is due to inactive or dead links. Much of the content could not be accessed and viewed because of this.

Content is current and includes traditional yet contemporary topics in an introductory wellness course. The textbook is organized in a way where updates or content changes would be easy to implement.

The reading level is appropriate for the intended audience. The use of educational jargon, confusing terms, unnecessarily complex language is avoided. Content is stated clearly and written from the learner’s perspective.

Some of the chapters have links to other sites

I recommend numerically labeling each chapter, so learners are better to navigate throughout the text. As I scrolled from chapter to chapter, I found myself unaware of what section of the text I was in. Finally, consistency can be compromised, with multiple authors/writing styles, but overall it is good.

The text uses appropriate design elements, including colors, fonts, spacing, graphics, formatting to facilitate modularity and minimize distractions for the learner.

The text is presented in a logical, clear fashion, including the order topics were presented. As aforementioned, numerically labeling the chapters may help with navigation to help learners realign.

Yes. No distortion of images or charts. The textbook facilitates readability and minimizes distractions. The text does contain minimal images and charts.

It is difficult to thoroughly assess this book, due to the number of inactive links included. I was glad to see this text available, and am interested in adopting a text like this. I do not see ancillary materials associated with and would be interested to learn if they are available. Great topics were included in this text, and they were well organized.

The book covers all the important areas of fitness and wellness. The chapter on stress is an important addition to this book and applies so much to college students who may be using this textbook. read more

Layout of the text and each chapter should be consistent including references

The book covers all the important areas of fitness and wellness. The chapter on stress is an important addition to this book and applies so much to college students who may be using this textbook. Some of the chapters have links to other sites (but see below comment about links) and have lab activities.

Very accurate. I particularly think the 1st chapter that has so much on behavioral change is important and gives a fair assessment of behavioral change models. They included the raya strengths and weaknesses of the different models. There are errors with the hyperlinks, most are not working in the book. One of the few I could get to work was in the Flexibility chapter and even that took me to a dead link. I have downloaded it a couple of times using different browsers and programs. However the number of links are nice and by their titles sound helpful. . If I were to use this is a class, I would have to specify how many I expect the students to visit and reflect on. There are lots of them and it could become consuming reading all the links. I think this is a very fixable issue by the authors. If they could address it, I would give then a 5. I didn’t find an bias in their materials.

Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Wonderful blog!

  27. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  28. I have been surfing online more than three hours lately, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty value enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the internet might be much more useful than ever before.

  33. Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work? I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
