Albeit an ample introduction to outdoor studies, its plenitude is overwhelming

At times, Daniel Svensson felt he needed a handbook of reviewing handbooks when working on his review of Routledge International Handbook of Outdoor Studies by Barbara Humberstone, Heather Prince & Karla A. Henderson (eds.) (Routledge). However, he managed very well without one, and here is his review to prove it.

A timely contribution that shows the value of physical activity for healthy ageing

In this original book review for idrottsforum.org, Mark Brooke takes on Humberstone & Konstantaki’s edited volume Ageing, Physical Activity, Recreation and Wellbeing (Cambridge Scholars Publishing). Our reviewer finds much to recommend the book, not least since we’re all living longer and getting older, and health becomes an even more important issue.
