The Concise Human Body Book is an all-in-one guide to the most important possession any of us can own. It combines up-to-the-minute description and illustration of the body's physical structure, chemical workings, and potential problems, with a comprehensive coverage of individual elements and processes. There is no major element of the body's structure or function that isn't explained by easy-to-follow text in everyday language, and complemented by clear graphic illustration, charts, and microscopic imaging.
The book not only deals with day-to-day processes, but also looks at the human body from the widest perspective, taking in the workings of DNA and the patterns of genetic inheritance, as well as foetal development, growth, and ageing - how these processes start, and the chemical and physical changes that occur.
