THE NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER _______ 'A directory of wonders.' & #8211 The Guardian 'Jaw-dropping.' & #8211 The Times 'Classic, wry, gleeful Bryson& #8230 an entertaining and absolutely fact-rammed book.' & #8211 The Sunday Times 'It is a feat of narrative skill to bake so many facts into an entertaining and nutritious book.' & #8211 The Daily Telegraph _______ & #8216 We spend our whole lives in one body and yet most of us have practically no idea how it works and what goes on inside it. The idea of the book is simply to try to understand the extraordinary contraption that is us.& #8217 Bill Bryson sets off to explore the human body, how it functions and its remarkable ability to heal itself. Full of extraordinary facts and astonishing stories The Body: A Guide for Occupants is a brilliant, often very funny attempt to understand the miracle of our physical and neurological make up. A wonderful successor to A Short History of Nearly Everything, this new book is an instant classic. It will have you marvelling at the form you occupy, and celebrating the genius of your existence, time and time again. & #8216 What I learned is that we are infinitely more complex and wondrous, and often more mysterious, than I had ever suspected. There really is no story more amazing than the story of us.& #8217 Bill Bryson
