The Fascinating Body: How It Works

Learning about the human body can be both fun and informative with this thorough and delightful explanation of how the body works, and how to keep it working. By asking questions about everyday experiences and observations, and explaining the answers in plain English with clear illustrations, Margulies has the reader racing from question to question to discover the body's amazing functions. After each question and explanation, you'll find yourself saying, "That's interesting, I didn't know that." Just when experts bemoan how little science the lay public understands, up steps Margulies with The Fascinating Body to light the way. Regardless of what you know about the human body, you will find this book to be a treasure trove of information. If you think you already understand how the body works, read a few chapters and see if you still feel that way. The Fascinating Body will change the way you look at yourself and the way you look at others. No longer will you see just a human form. From now on, you will see the body for what it really is, the most fascinating creation on Earth. For grades 9 through 12.
