Product description

Have you ever wondered why it takes so long to get out of bed in the morning? And why you always wake up bursting for a pee? Why that small blackhead has erupted into a hideous red spot overnight? And why stepping into a hot shower gives you goose bumps? Following an average family and their daily routine, Dr Hilary Jones takes you on a bold and captivating journey through the human body, answering these questions and hundreds more. From how our bodies function to why they react in certain ways, Dr Hilary tackles the questions that matter and examines what makes us tick. Fascinating and highly entertaining, A Day in Your Life reveals the incredible nature of the human body.
