"Bill Bryson... guides us through the human body--how it functions, its remarkable ability to heal itself, and (unfortunately) the ways it can fail. Full of extraordinary facts (your body made a million red blood cells since you started reading this) and irresistible Bryson-esque anecdotes, The Body will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you in particular."--Container.

An interesting exploration of the human body's systems and parts with lots of medical history. A bit gory in places but Bryson's narration and humor lightens the tone. Also like that he introduces statistics including global perspective, socioeconomic status, and gender differences.
