‘The Body’ a fantastic voyage

How much do you know about the ways in which your body works?

Most people have at least a rudimentary understanding of some of the basics, but it’s a scant few that possess a truly thorough knowledge about the ins and outs of their assorted systems and the organs that make those systems go.

Don’t worry, though – Bill Bryson is here to help.

Bryson’s newest book is “The Body: A Guide for Occupants” (Doubleday, $30). It’s a thoughtful and thorough trip through the human body, an amiable amble from top to bottom and from the outside in. It’s a well-researched and witty exploration of the immense complexities of the human form.

It's time to take yet another walk with everybody's favorite literary pedestrian.

It has been 20 years since Bill Bryson's 'Notes from a Small Island' was published. That book's unique blend of exasperated affection and curmudgeonly wit is beloved on both sides of the Atlantic, both in the author's adopted home and his native land.
