The Body: A Guide for Occupants

by Bryson, Bill (Author)

ISBN: 9780593106297

From the author of the science classic A Short History of Nearly Everything, and one of the bestselling and most beloved nonfiction writers in the English language, a tour de force excursion in and around the human body-how it works in all of its glorious complexity and how it inevitably fails to do so.

Bill Bryson is not only one of our funniest writers, he is also one our most curious ones, with an indefatigable thirst for discovering just how the world and all the things in it work and a glorious gift for communicating his findings entertainingly and clearly. It his latest work, he sticks very close to home, using his very own body as the subject of examination. From head to toe, inside and out, organ by organ, Bryson reveals the miraculous functioning of the human body and the (alas) inevitable ways in which its constituent parts will eventually fail. You'll never think about your corporeal self in the same way after reading this book. Hachette Fall 19/Winter 20 Omnibus
