Waterstones Says

Bill Bryson has proved time and again the ideal travelling companion, and now he takes us on a very singular tour of the human body. Following on from the classic A Short History of Nearly Everything, The Body uncovers the workings of organs, muscles and bones and is steeped in fascinating anecdote and enlightening trivia. An indispensable guide to the matter that we are made of, The Body is the must read science book of the year.

Signed Bookplate Edition

In the bestselling, prize-winning A Short History of Nearly Everything Bill Bryson achieved the seemingly impossible by making the science of our world both understandable and entertaining to millions of people around the globe.

Now he turns his attention inwards to explore the human body, how it functions and its remarkable ability to heal itself. Full of extraordinary facts and astonishing stories The Body: A Guide for Occupants is a brilliant, often very funny attempt to understand the miracle of our physical and neurological make up.
