Synopsis

The Human Machine by Richard Walker

The Ultimate Machine uses an innovative handbook/manual approach to explore an incredibly complex and sophisticated piece of engineering - the human body. Entertaining and informative in equal measure, The Ultimate Machine introduces readers to the body's operating and maintenance systems, and all its key components. As well as an essential guide to the body's main design features - for example its powerful sensory devices and incredibly fast on-board computer - the book explores a wealth of other fascinating subjects. High-interest spreads include survival mode (how the body deals with extreme conditions), shut-down mode (the mysteries of sleep revealed), troubleshooting tips (how to keep the body in tip-top condition) and future upgrades (designer bodies and implanted chips).

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
