Book Title: The Measurement of Affect, Mood, and Emotion: A Guide for Health-Behavioral Research

Author: Panteleimon Ekkekakis and James A. Russell

Book Description:

I recommend this recently published book as essential reading to anyone interested in studying the impact of physical activity on affect and mental health more broadly. It provides a succinct but thorough description of the key issues associated with the measurement of affect, mood, and emotion, and the impact a researcher's choice of measure may have on study conclusions. The book sifts through decades of research on affect, mood, and emotion and puts it in context of contemporary knowledge, a convenient way for any student to get introduced into the rich world of quantifying the "feel good" effect of physical activity and exercise.
