Summary
"Body: The Complete Human explains each of a person's working systems in a practical, interactive way. 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 a cancer cell, or blood platelets. Well-organized into 13 chapters, authoritative text is punctuated by sidebars, boxes, and cross references that clearly and reliably explain anatomy and function. With links to the highly-trafficked National Geographic website and reflecting the National Geographic Channel's incredibly successful show "The Living Body," this comprehensive reference utilizes top experts in the field to highlight the latest advances in health and medicine. This volume is an essential for students, families, and anyone with an interest in health or fitness."--Publisher's description
