The Body

豆瓣评分: 8.5


Bill Bryson, bestselling author of A Short History of Nearly Everything, takes us on a head-to-toe tour of the marvel that is the human body. As addictive as it is comprehensive, this is Bryson at his very best, a must-read owner's manual for everybody. Bill Bryson once again proves himself to be an incomparable companion as he guides us through the human body–how it functions, its remarkable ability to heal itself, and (unfortunately) the ways it can fail. Full of extraordinary facts (your body made a million red blood cells since you started reading this) and irresistible Bryson-esque anecdotes, The Body will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you in particular. As Bill Bryson writes, "We pass our existence within this wobble of flesh and yet take it almost entirely for granted." The Body will cure that indifference with generous doses of wondrous, compulsively readable facts and information.


BILL BRYSON's bestselling books include A Walk in the Woods, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, and A Short History of Nearly Everything (which won the Aventis Prize in Britain and the Descartes Prize, the European Union's highest literary award). He was chancellor of Durham University, England's third oldest university, from 2005 to 2011, and is an honorary fellow of Britain's Royal Society.


@ fugue #audiobook Bill Bryson是我心中的大神,之前写的关于澳洲那本觉得是又有趣知识点又多。这本the body关于人体器官简述的书刚出的时候就很想听又是专业相关!但是没想到!!!是作者自己读的,无比平缓的语速让人昏昏欲睡,内容也乏善可陈,就是无趣的数字堆积,简直可以又名那些年人类对自己身体做过的蠢事!全书全长14时4分 听到大概12小时的时候实在是再也听不进去了!希望Bill Bryson自己再也不要读自己写的书了,简直就是糟蹋和浪费!2020年读书时长150时 16分 @ littlesj 一本充满了fun facts的小书,通过各种医学发现(坑爹)故事串联起来,Bill Bryson的文笔流畅且富有趣味,推荐。 @ 绿黎藤 读完之后更觉得人体这部精密仪器难懂了,医生比我们知道的多些,但也没法解释很多很多现象。If you are cremated, your ashes will weigh about five pounds. And that's you gone. But it was good while it lasted, wasn't it? @ onion 非常好看的一本,人类的身体有太多秘密未曾破解,庆幸活着吧。 @ 小晨 有几年没读Bryson了,再读还是好喜欢他。他写的科学书都超有看头,信息量大还能把你逗乐,即便话题足够严肃。这本有Bryson的一贯优点,非常推荐。哦对,原来自由基和抗氧化完全骗人的啊,40年代的一个研究,后来被证明是错的,但是保健品行业的威力很大,卖货第一。
