Seeking a new laboratory to pursue his controversial genetic research, Dr Geoff Burton takes up a position at the world-renowned Institute for Molecular Cell Biology & Genetics in wintry Dresden, Germany. His contribution to their most top-secret project - a human regeneration gene - has the potential to make something miraculous out of a personal tragedy that has haunted him for years. But when he uncovers a conspiracy amongst his colleagues, he finds instead something quite different: a terrifying new virus, with potentially devastating consequences for humanity - and for Geoff, who is not only its first victim, but its unwitting source.
With all the elements that made the first two versions of Ultimate Human Body a stunning success – thousands of specially created illustrations and animations, dazzling microphotographs, and clearly written text – The Ultimate Human Body has been enhanced and updated, giving users 10 and up, an incomparable adventure in anatomy. Includes a 3D Body Scanner, great video sequences, and a Body Quiz Challenge game.
Michael Mosley embarks on an astonishing voyage through the world's most complex organism–you. Inside the Human Body takes us deep under our skin where we are dwarfed by even the smallest cell, where blood vessels become vast cathedrals and the tiniest cluster of cilia becomes an expansive forest. Our body’s almost infinite ability to adapt and surprise is illustrated by the stories of remarkable characters whose bodies allow them to do amazing things, live in incredible places and push their physiology to the limits. Spectacular photography shows human behaviour in super slow motion, revealing elements of ourselves that we are completely unaware of.
