Poly alum's book helps readers avoid media hype when it comes to health 

Carbs will make you fat. No wait, complex carbs are the ticket. You need to do hours of cardio to lose weight. Why are you wasting time on a machine? Pick up some weights! Every other day it seems like a new story is being spun on the best way to stay on the straight and narrow path to health and fitness.

Jeanne Murdock, a Cal Poly alumna and personal trainer, became so fed up with the hype that her clients were being fed from the fitness industry, that she wrote a book all about how to sort out what’s legit from what’s bogus. Released in February, Murdock’s fourth book, That’s a Bunch of Quackery! How to Avoid being Pick-Pocketed by Misleading Claims in the Fitness Industry, seeks to embolden readers to choose health and build wealth by acting according to evidence-based claims, not fear, while keeping a sense of humor. 

Murdock’s book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for $18.50.
