Based on a partnership between Wiley and the rich resources of The National Geographic Society, this book presents the important concepts of human biology as they relate to the world we live in. It stresses the role of the human in the environment throughout, ensuring that topics such as evolution, ecology and chemistry are introduced in a non-threatening and logical fashion. This approach stimulates the reader to ask questions and pursue knowledge for the sheer fun of it.
