"A fascinating look at what modern science tells us about who we are." --Elizabeth Kolbert, author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe

"It's rare to find a book that delivers so much knowledge in prose that's such an enormous pleasure to read." --Miriam E. Nelson, Tufts University, and author of Strong Women Stay Young

"Ackerman offers a pleasant day's diversion."

"An insightful text celebrating just how clever is the machine we call the human body."

Ackerman has hit her stride [with] a virtual full-body scan conducted over the course of 24 hours."

"A delightful picaresque . . . You'll never think about your body--and what you do to it--in the same way again." --Stephen S. Hall, author of Size Matters and Merchants of Immortality

"A readable and remarkably comprehensive tour of all that is new and intriguing in the study of normal human physiology." --Abigail Zuger, M.D.
