Overview

Human Body: A Basic Guide to the Way You Fit Together by Moff Betts

From single-celled embryo to fully grown human, Dr. Betts charts the major systems of the body, its interrelated organs and the revelations of microbiology. Find out why you couldn't live without bacteria or cholesterol; how your kidneys and lungs are mirror images of each other; and why you are a mix of your grandparents but only a meeting of your parents. Illustrated with rare historical engravings and beautiful contemporary drawings, The Human Body charms and informs as it reveals how the most complex organism in the world fits together.
