Summary "Not since Andreas Vesalius's On the Fabric of the Human Body, illustrated by the scholar in the mid-sixteenth century, has there been a work examining human anatomy for both the scientific and lay communities. The Architecture and Design of Man and Woman is the ultimate illustrated look at the internal structures and processes that sustain us as living, thinking, social beings."
"Using the most advanced medical and computer technology - including body scans, ultrapowerful microscopes, and molecular modeling tools - Alexander Tsiaras, founder of a widely acclaimed medical-imaging company, hones in on the body's intricately constructed systems and isolates structures that have never been seen before. In more than 500 images, he dismantles each system, highlights the anatomical difference between men and women, and rebuilds the body from the molecular level on up. Barry Werth's text enhances the power of the images, providing an array of startling and fascinating facts."--BOOK JACKET
