GENETICS FOR TRAINERS: Decoding the Sports Genes Genetics For Trainers (G4T) presents the major current concepts in genetics and decrypts genes' role on performance, recovery and risk of injuries. Written by and for strength and conditioning coach. G4T is a must read for anyone working in the athletic field. 
An athletic phenotype is a complex manifestation of many genetic and environmental exposures. Some genes have a direct effect on physical attributes, whereas others have an indirect effect via gene-gene or gene-environment interaction. 
A very own athletic performance excellence therefore would result from firstly choosing the right sport according to one's genetic profile and secondly, adapting the right training, nutrition and environmental interactions to optimally express your inherited genes. 
It is a contemporary notion that prescription exercise regimes can potentially be tailored to the genotype of the individual.

    I don’t know where to start writing a review for this book warning people against reading it. I read the English version and the book is not translated well. Not only that I don’t think the book has been through a second editing, only a thorough spell-check. The science information is poorly explained, and even though I am a PhD in genetics there are simple genetic facts and ways things are put that don’t require a PhD. The basic science is very bad. Apart from being poorly written in English I question if any of the scientific content was checked by professionals. I feel this publication was a rush job by an enthusistic person who may have been easily led. I don’t like giving bad reviews but I think the author should have worked on the book for much longer and sought a lot more professional and trusted advice.
