Publisher's Summary

Joining us at Audible Studios is Bill Bryson, one of Britain's best-selling nonfiction authors. Bryson has captivated the hearts and minds of Britons with his genial character, general cheerfulness and amazing ability to simplify overwhelming science into something that can be understood by all.  

Not only has Bryson given us all the ability to inform ourselves on the most complex of topics, but he provides a wry and uplifting perspective on travel in all regards, from the Appalachian trail to small mining villages in England.  

Bryson is back with his new book, The Body, to breakdown its functions and abilities into bite-size pieces we can all ingest. 

We spoke to Bill Bryson about his life's achievements so far, some of the most interesting facts and incredible stories that the human body has to offer, and his overwhelming love for Britain.

He should get rid of saying 'You Know'.

It was interesting to hear his thoughts but I didn't expect to hear the space filler ' You Know ' so many times from a professional writer.

an interesting listen

I have seemingly lived under a rock for my life so far and have yet to read/listen to any bill Bryson books. so listening to the interview was a great opportunity to find out if his writing and narrative style would be of interest to me. he appears as a fascinating and considered man with an eloquent style and so I am looking forward to starting my first Bill Bryson book shortly!
