I was expecting a coffee table book, which it is, but there is a lot of detailed explanatory text accompanying the images. The book walks through all the systems and organs of the body, showing different kinds of cells, layers of muscle, highly magnified images of bone, etc. Way more information that I really want to know, honestly, but beautifully and carefully done.
