How much do you know about your insides?
What we see in the text books implies that we’re all the same internally; that all our organs are identical. But that is not the case. Here, bestselling author and Professor of Anatomy Alice Roberts takes us on a journey through our bodies – to show we’re as different on the inside as we are on the outside. She explores the quirks of evolution that have led to the weirdest and most wonderful parts of ourselves, that we’ve never even heard of.
From the arbor vitae of the brain to the hidden crypts of our intestines, this is a fully illustrated guide to the most mysterious parts of the human body.
