"This eye-catching book makes the complicated human body much less so while still providing enough detail to allow readers to linger and explore."
“In the bright retro- futuristic art, glimpses of the bubble-helmeted explorers battling a scowling virus or slogging through puddles of nasal mucus add comical business to the big cutaway and diagrammatic views, making technical terms (synovial fluid, CRISPR) and details in the generous quantities of labels and explanatory notes all the more digestible.”
"There are tons of illustrations that help explain these advanced scientific concepts of different accessibility options for disabled peoples well as body systems. The lymphatic and endocrine systems as well as the senses and skin, everything is covered!"
