Our bodies are the most certain manifestation of our existence. But how well do we really know them? What do we really understand about the internal processes that allow us to think, breathe, laugh, eat, move and speak? Drawing on his experiences as a GP - and his sense of adventure - Gavin Francis explores the hidden pathways of the human body, from the brain's pea-sized pineal gland, the 'seat of the soul', to the delicate machinery of the hand and back to where it all begins, in the womb. Blending case studies and first-hand accounts, and providing insights from literature and history, Francis provides unique insights into what it is to be human: for behind each disease, degeneration or miraculous recovery lies a story of suffering and survival, of rich and poor, lucky and unlucky, fragile and resilient. Poetic, eloquent and profoundly perceptive, Adventures in Human Being will transform the way you view your own body.
