Wondering if anyone has read this book.



Just in case you don't know, James Levine is credited with the person who came up with or at least promoted the idea of a treadmill desk.



His book provides a lot of information on why using a treadmill desk is a good idea. Reading it certainly gave me more incentive to use my treadmill desk as much as possible.
