Yet this splendidly illustrated volume is far more than eye candy: it offers views you can use. Your Body is a practical "owner's manual" that explores the latest laboratory research on good health and wellness.

It will help you understand the workings of your body as never before, so you can shop better, eat better, exercise better-and live longer.
