Description:
Published in association with Wellcome Collection.
We have a lifetime's association with our bodies, but for many of us they remain uncharted territory. In 'Adventures in Human Being', Gavin Francis leads the reader on a journey through health and illness, offering insights on everything from the ribbed surface of the brain to the secret workings of the heart and the womb; from the pulse of life at the wrist to the unique engineering of the foot. Drawing on his own experiences as a doctor and GP, he blends first-hand case studies with reflections on the way the body has been imagined and portrayed over the millennia.
