About this book

Body: The Infographic Book of Us is the ultimate visual guide to the human body broken down into thematic sections of the physical, chemical, genetic, sensitive, coordinated, thinking, growing and medical body. Information gathered together by established author Steve Parker, is beautifully displayed through the striking and accessible graphics by artist Andrew Baker.

Composed of some 206 bones, 100,000 km of blood vessels and millions of new cells each second, our bodies are so much more than the sum of their parts. It is an unceasing source of wonder and something we carry with us until the day we die, yet most of us know remarkably little about it. Moving away from the tired treatment of an anatomical guide, this is an intriguing and beautiful approach to our most universal and prized possession. Featuring 100 stunning graphics and illustrations, the full spectrum is covered: from our most basic components through to the brain's complex synaptic processes as well as the weird and the wonderful of modern medicine. Body is the ideal guide to shed some light on truly getting to know yourself.
