The Way We Work: Getting To Know the Amazing Human Body

The Way We Work: Getting To Know the Amazing Human Body

by David Macaulay

An outstanding guide to the human body from one of the world's great illustrators, David Macaulay! Ever wondered how we breathe, or why? Or what happens to broccoli once your teeth have finished with it? Or how your eyes turn at the same time and in the same direction? Of all the complex things we encounter as we go through life, our bodies are probably the most remarkable of all. Explore everything from bones to bronchioles, noses to neurons in this clear, comprehensive and utterly engaging guide to the human body from the creator of the bestselling "The New Way Things Work". Research on this book took several years, but my favorite part is they way they hide reproductive organs in the crease on two page spreads. Even science is sexually frigid.
