• 17 gripping stories about the human body
• Popular science from Wellcome charity
What it’s like to be struck by lightning or to lose your sense of smell? We will ever find a cure for baldness? Read about one woman's quest to understand the menopause — and the window cleaner who fell 472ft and lived.
Originally written for Wellcome, the global health charity, these stories explore the mysteries of the human body. Leading writers follow the scientists investigating our limbs, organs and senses: how our eyes and ears work, how we respond to viruses, and how some people survive disaster.
Each chapter is packed with insight.
