Summary
  • From the Publisher: Many of us spend most of our lives oblivious to even basic information about the most amazing thing we'll ever take for granted-our own bodies. In The Way We Work, David Macaulay gives readers an opportunity to discover just how remarkable the human body really is. This comprehensive and entertaining resource reveals the inner workings of the human body and all of its systems and mechanisms, as only David Macaulay could. Page after page of beautifully illustrated spreads detail everything from cells to the bones and organs they build, clearly explaining the function of each, and offering up-close glimpses, unique cross-sections and perspectives, and even a little humor along the way. This book is for you and everyone you know. It can serve as a reference for children of all ages, families, teachers, and anyone who has questions about how their body works. This informative and engaging guide introduces you to you, and you will come away with a new appreciation of the amazing world inside yourself. When you open the cover you will see how David Macaulay builds a body and explains THE WAY WE WORK. There is no other book like it!
  • "Macaulay leads readers on a highly visual journey through the basics workings of the human body. In seven comprehensive sections he and coauthor Richard Walker take us from the cells of which we are formed to the individual systems they build. Each double-page spread explores a different aspect of this complex structure while gradually constructing as straightforward an overview as possible of the links between the inner workings of the body and the world outside."--BOOK JACKET
