Getting to know just how intricate and fascinating our bodies are.
Most of us take our body for granted and are never aware of its amazing capabilities. This book looks at how the seven octillion atoms that make up the human body are grouped into organs, tissues, nerves, fibres, fluids and more in such a way that the entire system runs smoothly without us ever knowing about it.
This book explains the hidden world of hormones and enzymes, the battleground of your immune system, the senses and much more. Using offbeat illustrations and concise text, the book examines the symphony of interconnections and interdependences that keeps us alive.
"Exceptionally informative, impressively well written, organized and presented, packed with illustrations and useful diagrams." - Midwest Book Review
