Each of the nine key chapters is sub-divided, offering thorough coverage of each part of the body and its function.

Supported by clear labels, concise text and fun facts - there are 100,000km of blood vessels in your body, enough to stretch around the world twice! A macrophage can eat about 200 bacteria before it dies. Sneezes blast air out of the nose at speeds of up to 160 km/h - there is so much to discover and understand on each page. Whilst each page is full, it is clearly laid out, making it very easy to follow, entertaining without being distracting. A detailed glossary explains the scientific vocabulary and there is a giant 'Body Machine' poster included in a pocket at the back, offering a quick reference source whilst reading.
