This eye-catching book takes readers on a fantastic voyage through human biology using digital illustration and cutting-edge scans and imagery. An introductory chapter details the evolution of Homo sapiens and reveals the body's building blocks—its chemical elements, molecules, and cells. A section on the body in action examines the skeleton and the muscles. The final chapter explains how cells join together to form the organs and body systems that keep us fueled, aware of our surroundings, and free of disease.
