About the Author:

Robert Winston is an acclaimed scientist and host of several television programs, including The Human Body and Superhuman series on the BBC, and the Learning Channel's Intimate Universe series.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. "Our bodies are really just machines. But they are more complicated and built better than any machine we can make." Walker's pithy opening observation is borne out by this book's unusual digitally created artwork, culled from a virtual cadaver that was originally developed for use by doctors and medical students. A sturdy, covered spiral binding allows the topical spreads and occasional acetate overlays to lie flat as browsers explore the body's major systems and regions, a tour that includes a clinical view of the female and male reproductive organs. Though some children may find the deluge of captions in minute type overwhelming, the striking visuals will readily satisfy younger readers motivated by any combination of macabre curiosity and scientific interest. A glossary is included, as is a prominently displayed CD that many libraries may wish to remove. The book works just fine without the digital supplement, but do keep the disk on hand to show curious students its 360-degree animations. Jennifer Mattson
