  1. It is a pity that Bryson feels the need to get digs in at the notion of God For example , he maarvels about the eye and then criticizes it for being madebackward when he mentions intellivgent desigm To each his owm view but going about wonderfully made we are and not even entertaining the idea that there might be something otger than randomness involved is shortsighted And intentionally insulting that belif system felt hostile to me.


  2. If you d like to learn about how the body works but don t want to read textbooks on human anatomy and physiology, this is the book for you As Bryson writes, We pass our existence within this warm wobble of flesh and yet take it entirely for granted We are the product of three billion years of evolutionary refinement, a biological machine of unimagined complexity, and yet most of us can t even identify where the spleen is, or what it does.If this book doesn t pique your interest in how your body [...]


  3. Bill Bryson wants you to stand in amazement at what you ve been closest to your whole life your own body That is the tone he sets in this fascinating look at what we know from science about human anatomy.It s important for readers to know that the book takes a modern scientific and not a creator based approach to humanity While amazed by the feats of engineering evolution has accomplished over the eons, Bryson also points out design flaws or parts that any intelligent engineer would have done be [...]


  4. Bill Bryson is an author who has the ability to make any subject both enjoyable and edifying Whether the subject is his own childhood The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid , history One Summer , or science A Short History of Nearly Everything , he seems to be able to extract unique and humorous snippets of information about his subject and weave them into a narrative which is both pleasurable and educational His relaxed style of writing makes the reader wish he could invite him over for a co [...]


  5. I enjoyed reading this straight thru on my Kindle with admiration for all the author s careful research Having read all his previous books, I was prepared for his humor and I knew this would both educational and enjoyable As a senior citizen, cancer survivor, heart attack survivor and happy great grandmother, I learned a lot of up to date information Thanks for a great book Perhaps I ll live to a 100 Love those stories


  6. First look Not enough illustrative pictures of body as I expected interview on BBC made it look sound as though there would be relevant MRI images As a medical professional I long for Joe Public to have better knowledge awareness about the workings of their body Which would help them to understand preventative messages management approaches Not yet sure whether this will help or meet those needs Everyone needs to take responsibility for their health prevent avoid ill health.


  7. Having recently read Professor Alice Roberts Don t Die Young where she covers our vital organs in depth BUT succinctly and with greater clarity and brevity I found myself glazing over with the avalanche of facts, figures and diversions in Bill s books such that nothing sticks in my memory.I appreciate that this is a very personal reaction and that others will find it both educational and rewarding just not me.Sorry Bill, I m normally a great fan.
