Description: Have you ever wondered how far sneeze droplets can travel? (eight metres) What about the strength of our bones? (stronger than reinforced concrete) Brimming with facts and figures and fascinating anecdotes, this quirky and engaging 'guide for occupants' addresses these questions and many, many more as it reveals both the wonders of the human body, and the history of medicine.

Comprehensive, yet easy to read, this owner's manual requires no prior knowledge beyond the basics for its extraordinary revelations to be appreciated.

Comments from BDS Reviewers:

"It's not overly technical so no prior knowledge is required."

"Written in an engaging manner and it's not long as Bryson's 'At Home' was - recommended."
