Summary
Bill Bryson takes us on a head-to-toe tour of the marvel that is the human body. 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 facts (your body made a million red blood cells since you started reading this) and anecdotes, The Body will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you, in particular
