Long, long ago, ancient Egyptians thought that all of our ideas and personalities came from our hearts—boy, were they wrong!

Debunking old (and sometimes silly) myths about the human body, this new addition to the Boy, Were We Wrong series shows how we discovered modern biology and medicine. From healing by applying leeches, to the ancient practice of acupuncture, to the discovery and study of DNA, this is the story of what we know about our bodies and how we still have lots to learn.

A perfect selection for Common Core or STEM collections

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–4—The human body is remarkably complex, and many theories—now proven to be false—have been formulated over the years to explain its workings. Tackling everything from mummies to acupuncture to the optic nerve, this book gives a brief history of a few of these theories, why they were wrong, and what we've learned about how the body really works. Kudlinski provides a solid overview of some of the main parts of the body, including the brain, the eye, and bones. Germ theory and some of the modern tools used to assess the human body are covered briefly. An appended time line lays out dates for major medical discoveries and innovations. The cartoon illustrations are enlightening and appealing. VERDICT There aren't many existing books on this topic, making this title a good option for general purchase.—Heidi Grange, Summit Elementary School, Smithfield, UT
