The Body

Imagine Bill Bryson with tongue firmly in cheek: Of course, he couldn't include everything known about the human body. The resulting book would be too heavy to lift, but he deftly manages to condense an impossibly huge topic into something the average reader can fit neatly on a coffee table or beside the bed. Think of The Body as you would the wise-cracking crib sheet for the medical textbook Gray's Anatomy. It will answer most questions you had and many you didn't about each part of these marvelous vessels we call home. Recommended by Kelly
