Synopsis

We know more about our bodies than ever before, but why are there so many unanswered questions? Why do our elbows and knees bend in opposite directions? Why do men and women walk differently? Why do men have nipples? Why is childbirth so painful? Why do we sleepwalk? This book aims to answer these questions and many others as it traces our evolution.
