1st ed.
The Human Body Explained makes sense of the intricate workings of the body by focusing not on what the body is, but on what it does. In the book's five chapters - "Support and Movement", "Control and Sensation", "Energy", "Circulation, Maintenance, and Defense", and "Reproduction and Growth" - topics are fully explored in double-page spreads with lavish illustrations and clearly written text that employs comparisons and analogies from everyday life to help explain the functions of the human body. The Human Body Explained makes the human organism in all its complexity accessible to every reader. While each of the book's spreads is a self-contained story, a unique cross-referencing system leads readers to related information both within a particular section and among the other four. This system also makes using the book an active experience and shows the interrelation between the different parts of the body.
