"A fascinating, lyrical book...The way he thinks about the body and medicine ... is extraordinary!"
-Mary Roach, author of Stiff, Fuzz, Bonk and Gulp
The Unseen Body is a journey through the human body and across the globe that weaves together medical stories about our insides with a unique perspective on life, culture and the natural world. This book is a one-of-a-kind educational odyssey that navigates our insides like an explorer discovering a new world, all while answering such offbeat questions as why urine is the most fascinating bodily fluid, why the throat is so foolishly designed, and why lungs are illegal to sell as human food in the US.
This book makes a great gift for a medical student, nursing student, or anyone else training to be a healthcare professional.
