This book is awesome! I learned amazing things about the
human body myself. The book is full of images--CT scans, bone scans,
angiograms, x-rays, ultrasounds, and electron microscope photos.
My favorite is of a “macrophage trapping a pathogen.” It’s amazing
what scientists can see these days, and they’ve passed on the images to
you. If I were a home schooler, I’d rush out to buy this book.
As it is, I may decide to anyway--a stunningly comprehensive view of the
human body. Lessons about parts of the body were nothing like this
when I was a kid!
