The Way We Work: Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body
by David Macaulay, with Richard Walker

Everything you ever wanted to know, or not know, about the human body and its functions. The extensive and detailed explanations threaten to overwhelm the reader at times. As well, Macaulay's huge illustrations, which compare the body to a factory, can be difficult to interpret. A good reference book overall.
