In the sequel to his best-selling Inflight Science, Brian Clegg offers a spectacular tour through the human body.

He explores mitochondria, in-cell powerhouses once separate creatures; how your eyes consume million-year-old photons of light; your many senses, which include the ability to detect warps in space and time; and why meeting an attractive person can turn you into a gibbering idiot.

Brian Clegg is a science writer who lives in Wiltshire, England. His previous books include Before the Big Bang (St Martin's Griffin, 2011) and Inflight Science (Totem Books, 2011).

Review:

`The Universe Inside You is science writer Brian Clegg's latest attempt to catalogue a world of science that you probably should remember from school but never quite paid enough attention to.' -- New Scientist '[The Universe Inside You] explains the inner workings of your body in order to explore the outermost workings of the universe. I'm completely gripped.' -- Jessica Powell, Top Sante
