9780192728647: The Human Machine: An Owner's Guide to the Body

We share our planet with an incredible range of life-millions of species of animals, plants, fungi, and microorganisms. Although we are the most intelligent of all life-forms, we are, like other creatures, biological machines that walk, feed, drink, and behave. And, in our case, talk, create, think, and remember.
The Human Machine is a splendid and unique guide to the human body and the way it works, a user's manual covering all aspects of the body's activities, including troubleshooting and repairs. On each and every page of this book you can discover everything you need to know and understand about the body's huge range of operations. Like any manual, The Human Machine is highly organized. Check out any aspect of the body machine's workings and you will be presented with clear explanations of what the body does and exactly how it does it. Every page is filled with helpful color illustrations, engaging text, and sidebar boxes that offer a wealth of information: True or False questions to test your knowledge, Top Tips highlighting key information, Rival Products comparing humans to other organisms, as well as Design Features, Additional Data, Web Links, and more.
For all those who want to "look under the hood," The Human Machine offers an innovative and accessible way to explore an incredibly complex and sophisticated piece of engineering-the human body. Young readers will have fun finding out about the body's operating and maintenance systems, and all the key components that make this miraculous machine work so well.
