Description

Bill Bryson, bestselling author of A Short History of Nearly Everything, takes us on a head-to-toe tour of the marvel that is the human body. As addictive as it is comprehensive, this is Bryson at his very best, a must-read owner's manual for everybody.

Bill Bryson once again proves himself to be an incomparable companion as he guides us through the human body--how it functions, its remarkable ability to heal itself, and (unfortunately) the ways it can fail. Full of extraordinary facts (your body made a million red blood cells since you started reading this) and irresistible Bryson-esque anecdotes, The Body will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you in particular. As Bill Bryson writes, "We pass our existence within this wobble of flesh and yet take it almost entirely for granted." The Body will cure that indifference with generous doses of wondrous, compulsively readable facts and information.

Non-Fiction Book Club Overview:

Would you like to learn about different ideas, topics, thoughts, opinions and perspectives? If so, the non-fiction book club is for you. Once a month, we will meet to discuss one book for one hour. Most of the books will be available as audiobooks so you can easily listen to them on the way to work.

You don’t necessarily have to have read the book - it’s more important that you’re open to discussing the key ideas in it. Also, I will create some slides of the core ideas and put them on the screen.
During the conversations, we will answer the questions “what did you like/dislike?”, “what was your key take-away?“ and “how do you think this will influence your actions?“ We will be open to any and all opinions and give everyone a chance to speak (if they would like to). Afterwards, anyone who wishes can go for a coffee, beer or soft drink, but there are no obligations.

When: First Thursday of every month, 5:30pm - 6:30pm
