Revealing the beauty and intricacy of the body, this color-tabbed, superbly illustrated visual guide explores the structure and function of all the parts that make up a human being. The book begins with an introduction to the body systems and regions, followed by an overview of microscopic elements like blood cells and DNA. The major body systems—from the bones, muscles, and skin to the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and nervous systems, as well as the workings of the internal organs and the brain—are examined in detail in more than 500 detailed illustrations with labels and captions. Particular parts and regions are shown from different angles and cross-sectional illustrations reveal internal structures.
