In the sequel to his best-selling Inflight Science, Brian Clegg offers a spectacular tour through the human body.
He explores mitochondria, in-cell powerhouses once separate creatures; how your eyes consume million-year-old photons of light; your many senses, which include the ability to detect warps in space and time; and why meeting an attractive person can turn you into a gibbering idiot.
Brian Clegg is a science writer who lives in Wiltshire, England. His previous books include Before the Big Bang (St Martin's Griffin, 2011) and Inflight Science (Totem Books, 2011).
