The Way We Work


  • A very complete description of the “mechanical” aspect of human anatomy that is at once enlightening, entertaining–a visual delight.
    School Library Journal
  • The book is astonishingly comprehensive, beginning with the structure of a cell, traveling through various systems (e.g., respiratory, digestive, etc.) and ending with childbirth. Followers of Macaulay will expect some wit, and it is evident, not just in captions but in throwaways, as in an explanation of taste that acknowledges that smell is “the senior partner”…motivated teens will feel they’ve gone to premed heaven.
