How Fat Works (Harvard University Press, 2006). This is a a fantastic book written by a Professor at the Burnham Medical Research Institute on the workings of fat. Wood has written a great section (chapter 14) titled Exercise to Burn Fat. He explains both aerobic and anaerobic metabolism with great clarification as well as various aspects of metabolism in general. This book is well worth the read, no matter if you're just a fitness enthusiast or a professional in the industry. See review here. Dr. Wood is holding a model of fat if you're wondering.
