This is not a typical handbook that simply illustrates the various parts of the body and how they work! This book narrates the human body as the incredibly complex mechanism that it is. It uses an innovative language, infographics, to simplify the most complex data - information, numbers, curiosities and measures - and make them readily understandable and accessible. The book begins with a useful timeline of human evolution and continues with fascinating, thorough explanations as well as illustrations and diagrams that are both fun and understandable. They make subjects like the functions of the brain, muscles and the skeleton, the heart and the skin, the sensory organs, DNA and cell structure, easy to comprehend.
