The Way We Work: Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body
The Way We Work
Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body
Hardcover      ISBN: 0618233784

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.

The Body Atlas: A Pictorial Guide to the Human Body
The Body Atlas
A Pictorial Guide to the Human Body
by DK
Hardcover      ISBN: 1465490965
Reveal the inner workings of the human body with this illustrated atlas.

How well do you know your body? What happens under your skin? Where exactly is your stomach? What does your liver do? How can ears help your balance? The Body Atlas answers all these questions and many more.

This unique visual guide approaches a body as if it were a map, divided into continents (such as parts of the body) and countries (such as organs). You can see inside your body and examine it region by region - for example, the head and neck or the upper torso. These regions enclose vital structures, such as the brain, lungs, and heart, just as continents contain countries. Body systems such as the circulatory system (blood) and nervous system, link the body regions just like mountains and rivers range across countries.

The detailed illustrations carefully pull back the layers of the body so you can see inside the hidden interior. All bones, muscles, and organs are clearly labeled with scientific and common names; and there are photos of parts you wouldn't normally be able to see, such as your vocal cords.

Packed with amazing facts and illustrations, The Body Atlas takes you on a top-to-toe tour through your own anatomy. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, this book has been refreshed for a new generation of budding biologists and doctors-in-the-making.

Stuff You Need to Know about the Human Body
Paperback      ISBN: 1770859810

Review of Stuff You Need to Know by John Farndon: "Packed with information." --School Library Journal

On the heels of Stuff You Need to Know , which covered anything and everything mechanical, comes this new take on something we all have in common -- the human body. Aimed at readers nine and up, Stuff You Need to Know About the Human Body follows teams of tiny people as they run around performing the actions explained in the text. Stops are made at all of the body's organs, processes, and systems, from the hippocampus to blood to DNA and ear wax.

Readers will discover answers to the questions they didn't know they had, like:

  • what exactly happened when I broke my leg?
  • why did my Dad have a heart attack?
  • why do I feel so awful when I get the flu?
  • what are goosebumps?
  • why am I supposed to drink a lot of water?
  • The 80-page extent allows for an in-depth look at many of the body's processes, and the four double gatefolds give a large space in which to show the circulatory, skeletal, immune, and digestive systems. Readers can learn that they have two skeletal systems; what each neighborhood in the brain does; why veins look blue if blood is red; and if they want to, they can follow their dinner as it goes from the tongue to the gut to, well, the very end.

    Packed with authoritative information presented humorously and with a light touch of accurate scientific terminology, this is a fabulous browser for all young readers.
