The author of "How We Die" combines his clinical knowledge and a sense of wonder to explore the human body, explaining how our myriad, multifarious cells work and how they organize themselves to protect our bodies from threats to our wellbeing and safety. The book's topics range from the complex detail of DNA to the engineering of the circulatory system, and through accounts of life-and-death emergencies and case histories the author takes readers close to his own experience as a practising surgeon and physician. He also seeks to move beyond mechanics and biology to explore the human spirit.
