Book Introduction

Number One Bestseller in both hardback and paperback
The Sunday Times Book of the Year
The ideal gift for everybody

'A directory of wonders.' Guardian

'Jaw-dropping.' The Times

'Classic, wry, gleeful Bryson...an entertaining and absolutely fact-rammed book.' The Sunday Times

'It is a feat of narrative skill to bake so many facts into an entertaining and nutritious book.' Daily Telegraph

'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.'

Bill Bryson sets off to explore the human body, how it functions and its remarkable ability to heal itself. Full of extraordinary facts, astonishing stories and now fully illustrated for the first time, 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. The ideal gift for readers of every age who wish to discover more about themselves.

'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.' Bill Bryson
