(Audio) The Body, by Bryson

Sunday March 3, 2024

Bryson's intonation is a little like Werner Herzog's. His book on the body is charmingly, gently amusing. It's a selection of fun facts and good advice: exercise more, eat less, maybe get some more vitamin D and choline. One reference is Haldane's 1926 On Being the Right Size, which has a similar sense of humor. Bryson has a good time, and so does the reader (or listener).
