Reviews for The Body: A Guide for Occupants

'A delightful tour guide ... Bryson's stroll through human anatomy, physiology, evolution, and illness (diabetes, cancer, infections) is instructive, accessible, and entertaining.' -- Booklist 'The Body - a delightful, anecdote-propelled read - proves one of his most ambitious yet, as he leads us on a head-to-toe tour of a physique that's terra incognita to many of us ... Playful, lucid ... [Bryson] cover[s] a remarkably large swathe of human corporeal and cerebral experience.' -- The Boston Globe
