Description
Dr. Sherwin Nuland, author of the National Book Award-winning "How We Die," once again combines knowledge, compassion, and elegance of expression to shed light on the workings of our bodies from the perspective of a surgeon. Dr. Nuland recounts age-old legends about the functions and "personalities" of the body's organs and, in riveting vignettes of the surgery he has performed, he describes the connections between myth and reality. A brilliant blend of science and folklore, "The Mysteries Within" reveals the enigmas not only of the body but also of the human imagination.
