David Macaulay’s detailed illustrations and wry humor have helped millions of readers understand the complex inventions and architecture that frame our world. His books have demystified castles, cathedrals, pyramids and common household objects. Now the author of The Way Things Work and dozens of other titles has tackled his most challenging, and awe-inspiring topic yet: the human body. Macaulay spent six years working on his latest book, The Way We Work: Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body.
