The fascinating story of the evolution and structure of human and animal skeletons is splendidly captured in Skeleton. As with other titles in the encyclopaedic Eyewitness series, stunning photographs sit side by side with easy-to-digest facts on cleverly designed pages, making for a highly stimulating read.
As the reader is taken through the labyrinth of the human body, each bone is carefully examined and compared to corresponding bones in animals, highlighting the similarities and differences between species with a rare clarity. Anyone who has ever wondered how this complicated framework functions, protecting vital organs from harm while allowing us to walk, run, jump and swim, will find the answers here, laid out in an attractive manner that consistently intrigues and never patronizes. --Susan Harrison
