My Take on the Book
This book has amazing photographs of the human body. There are details I have never viewed before like the eyelash mites that are at the base of everyone's eye lashes but are not harmful to your eyes, You will also view heart strings which link the valves to the muscles.
Not only is there detailed information how your body works, but there are sections about proper eating habits to stay healthy and sections about each of the systems.
I learned so much reading about the various glands in my body and their purpose. Much of this was new information.
