Open Me Up
For example, a spread on "Cell Division" begins, "Hey, you! Yes, you eating the hot dog in the opposite stand . . ." with the text set over a photo of sports fans in a stadium. It goes on to explain mitosis, in a down-to-earth way.
The book is divided into eight sections, covering everything from organs to fuel to medical issues to bones/muscles/nerves/cells and so much more. You can learn about twins, puberty, "toilet truths," pandemics, ways corpses are preserved . . .a book-browser's paradise of interesting tidbits of facts.
As an example of all OPEN ME UP has to offer, in the "Skin" chapter, we learn about skin's stunning design features, high performance, barrier capabilities, and control of body temperature. Then we go on to body decoration (including the most popular tattoos), all about hair, the what/why of nails, fingerprints, and skin colors.
OPEN ME UP is irresistible; even non-science geek types will not be able to refrain from doing exactly as the title says.
