In this comprehensive and entertaining resource, David Macaulay
reveals the inner workings of the human body as only he could. In
order to present this complicated subject in an accurate and entertaining
way, he put in years of research. He sat in on anatomy classes, dissections,
and even reached inside the rib cages of two cadavers to compare
their spleen sizes. He observed numerous surgeries, including a
ten-hour procedure where a diseased pancreas was removed, as well as
one where a worn-out old knee was replaced by a brand new one. This
hands-on investigation gives Macaulay a unique perspective to lead his
readers on a visual journey through the workings of the human body.
The seven sections within the book take us from the cells that form
our foundation to the individual systems they build. Each beautifully
illustrated spread details different aspects of our complex structure,
explaining the function of each and offering up-close glimpses, unique
cross-sections and perspectives, and even a little humor along the way.
This one-of-a-kind book can serve as a reference for children, families,
teachers, and anyone who has questions about how his or her body
works. When readers see how David Macaulay builds a body and
explains the way it works, they will come away with a new appreciation
of the amazing world inside them.
