"? this book is an excellent resource. It provides the reader with basic, applied, and clinically relevant material on the most pertinent aspects of thermal physiology ? even a neophyte will find aspects of this book fascinating and understandable." The Physiologist, 1999 "Most chapters are superbly written, beautifully illustrated, and highly informative ? This book is a bargain, and one that those interested in thermophysiology will treasure." The Quarterly Review of Biology, Mar 2000
