The Body Summary
by Bill Bryson
The Body helps us become smarter about how to take care of and use this mechanism that gives us life, explaining how it's put together, what happens on the inside, and how it functions.
by Bill Bryson
When was the last time you stopped to think about your body and how miraculous it is? Science gives us fascinating truths about the human body, but there is still so much mystery. In fact, scientists can't even say exactly where it begins. Sure, we know that we're made of cells. But we're not sure exactly how all the diverse types of cells coordinate themselves and become a functioning human.
It's pretty wondrous if you think about it. Our bodies are mysterious and complex, even to those who spend their lives studying them. Bill Bryson's book The Body: An Occupant's Guide reveals some of the surprising details that cutting-edge science has told us about our bodies.
You will be both entertained and fascinated as Bryson explores the human body and explains many of its remarkable abilities you probably don't think much about. You'll learn about everything from the ambiguous need we all have for sleep to what we know about the role of the millions of microbes that reside inside our body. By the time you're done reading, you will marvel at the weirdness and utter brilliance of your human body.
