Bill Bryson has discovered something more challenging than his “Walk in the Woods”—the human body and all its quirky and bizarre wonders. As I read the chapter about the heart, I found myself saying a silent "thank you" and patting my chest a bazillion times a day. More than ever, I realize we are the result of fantabulous feats of Mother Nature Gone Wild.
Reading Bill Bryson as he explains how my eyeballs are able to read Bill Bryson is a trip! If you find yourself feeling ho hum... this book is a pair of jumper cables just waiting for you to latch on. Go for it. You'll be saying "thank you" in no time at all.
