ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: THE WASHINGTON POST - FINANCIAL TIMES -
THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS - BOOKPAGE - BOSTON.COM Bill Bryson, bestselling
author of A Short History of Nearly Everything, takes us on a head-to-toe
tour of the marvel that is the human body. As addictive as it is
comprehensive, this is Bryson at his very best, a must-read owner's manual
for everybody. Bill Bryson once again proves himself to be an incomparable
companion as he guides us through the human body--how it functions, its
remarkable ability to heal itself, and (unfortunately) the ways it can
fail. Full of extraordinary facts (your body made a million red blood cells
since you started reading this) and irresistible Bryson-esque anecdotes,
The Body will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is
life in general and you in particular. As Bill Bryson writes, We pass our
existence within this wobble of flesh and yet take it almost entirely for
granted. The Body will cure that indifference with generous doses of
wondrous, compulsively readable facts and information.
