In Burn, evolutionary biologist, Herman Pontzer offers pioneering research that provides a refreshing insight on the science of the human metabolism. Interweaving both anthropologica...l observations and anecdote, Pontzer provides an accessible understanding of biology, encouraging us to rethink our understanding of the metabolism and, in decoding its complexities, truly understand how we can make our bodies thrive.

            Humans are the only mammals to walk on two, rather than four, legs. From an evolutionary perspective, this is an illogical development, as it slows us down. But here we are, suggesting there must have been something tremendous to gain from bipedalism.

            The Body Atlas: A Pictorial Guide to the Human Body

            How well do you know your body? What happens under your skin? Where exactly is your stomach? What does your liver do? How can ears help your balance? The Body Atlas answers all these questions and many more. This unique visual guide reveals the innermost workings of the human bod...y. It approaches a body as if were a map, divided into continents (such as parts of the body) and countries (such as organs). You can see inside your body and examine it region by region - for example, the head and neck or the upper torso. These regions enclose vital structures, such as the brain, lungs, and heart, just as continents contain countries. Body systems such as the circulatory system (blood) and nervous system, link the body regions just like mountains and rivers range across countries. The detailed illustrations carefully pull back the layers of the body so you can see inside the hidden interior. All bones, muscles, and organs are clearly labelled with scientific and common names; and there are photos of parts you wouldn't normally be able to see, such as your vocal cords. Packed with amazing facts and illustrations, The Body Atlas takes you on a top-to-toe tour through your own anatomy. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, this book has been refreshed for a new generation of budding biologists and doctors-in-the-making.
