Organised into 13 major sections, this book covers the innermost workings of all the body's systems, from the earliest stages of development in the womb to successful strategies that keep the body fit as it ages. In over 400 images, diagrams and illustrations, the amazing diversity of the body is shown in rich visuals, such as the highly magnified view of the cancer cell, or blood platelets. It comes with sidebars, boxes and cross-references that clearly and reliably explain anatomy and function.
