Product description

Review

Magnificent, inspired. He writes like a latter-day Montaigne. Stimulating scientific hypotheses, bold philosophic theories, illuminating quotations and curious facts. I recommend it to all (Telegraph *****)

Splendid, highly entertaining, chock-full of insights ... It inserts fascinating scientific snippets and anecdotes about our organs into the wider history of our changing understanding of our bodies (Sunday Times)

A relentlessly entertaining cultural history of the human body ... brims with fascinating details, infectious enthusiasm ... the terrain he covers is so richly brought to life (Guardian)

Elegant and informative ... For Aldersey-Williams, [the body] is a thing of wonder and a repository of fascinating facts (Mail on Sunday ****)
