When you think about it, the human body is fascinating. From the outside to every single organ on the inside, to every single blood cell, to every neuron… There is so much to know, so much to explore, it is ridiculous.
And, although science and biology have already uncovered many of the secrets our bodies hold, there is still so many things to know, so many things yet to fully understand and discover.

Opening up the gates of this world to everyone, guiding us through complicated scientific and biological terms in such a natural, exciting idea, you will find yourself flipping through the pages nonstop.
If you are all about knowing more about the human body, why it is the way it is, why mutations are significant and what do they mean, then this book is definitely for you. It will stop your thirst for knowledge, and it will leave you to amaze in the most positive way ever.
Author Leroi manages to talk about a very dense, complicated topic like human biology in such an artistic, easy to read way, and this book is perfect for anybody.
