The Body, a Guide for Occupants by Bill Bryson, review by Robin Templin

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.
