Summary

Taking advantage of nonscience students' natural curiosity about how the human body works, Human Biology: Concepts and Current Issues sparks readers' interest in science and encourages active learning. With a focus on body systems, the text seeks to make students better consumers of health and science information. The inspired narrative tells a story instead of listing facts. A magazine-style presentation sets off key ideas so students can remember them.
