NACCHO Book Club — The Body: A Guide for Occupants

Apr 17, 2020 | Emily Yox

Each month, NACCHO will bring you a new public health book, read and reviewed by NACCHO staff. We hope to provide a well-rounded reading list that you will find enjoyable as well as informative.

I am a big fan of Bill Bryson’s writing, so I was very excited and surprised when I saw that he recently published a book related to health and the human body. Being in the field of public health but having no medical background, this book provided a thorough and well-researched synopsis of all systems of the body. With a knack for compelling storytelling and fun and interesting facts, this is a great overview of all the body systems.

I am always looking for new books to read and recommend. If you have more free time than normal given social distancing, please feel free to send me recommendations at eyox@naccho.org.

Want to discuss this book and others? Head over to NACCHO’s Virtual Communities page and connect with peers.
