This is an excellent book for readers of all ages from 1st grade to adulthood. If a younger reader reads this, I would suggest some parent guidance. The illustrations are excellent. For anyone wanting to know about the internal structures of the body, this is a perfect book. It is a great book to use for a unit about health or the body.

Human Body by Steve Parker is a book that will blow your mind. It has info on the blood, cells, nervous system, bones, including the brain. From early thoughts about biology, to the modern knowledge about the body, this is one book you'll want to read if you're interested into science, biology, or the body.

Recommends it for: everyone who is curious about how their body is intergrated
I have just begun to study this book and am very excited with what I find. I teach people anatomy of movement, body mapping and how our thinking determines how we move. This volume provides illustrations from CT scans, MRI and x-ray along with three dimensional color diagrams. The text accurately describes how our bodies work. It discusses and illustrates every system and is easy to follow and understand. I recommend it to anyone who is curious about how we are designed and also what can go awry ...more

While we didn't really read this book, we did spend a lot of time looking at the pictures and talking about what the different parts of the body were and what they did.

Excellent photography and illustrations.
