About this book

'We spend our whole lives in one body and yet most of us have practically no idea how it works and what goes on inside it. The idea of the book is simply to try to understand the extraordinary contraption that is us.'

Bill Bryson sets off to explore the human body, how it functions and its remarkable ability to heal itself. Full of extraordinary facts, astonishing stories and now fully illustrated for the first time, The Body Illustrated: A Guide for Occupants is a brilliant, often very funny attempt to understand the miracle of our physical and neurological make-up. This reissue is illustrated throughout.
