  • HOME LEARNING JUST GOT GROSS . . . THE RECORD-BREAKING NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER FROM THE UK'S BESTSELLING NON-FICTION AUTHOR.

    Discover all the weird and wonderful things that go on inside your body with Dr Adam Kay. Covers key stage 2 / 3 human biology syllabus (in a slightly repulsive way).

    'Hilarious and fascinating! I wish Adam had been my biology teacher' - Konnie Huq


    Do you ever think about your body and how it all works? Like really properly think about it? The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, well . . . pretty weird. Yours is weird, mine is weird, your maths teacher's is even weirder.

    This book is going to tell you what's actually going on in there, and answer the really important questions, like:

    Are bogeys safe to eat? Look, if your nose is going to all that effort of creating a snack, the least we can do is check out its nutritional value. (Yes, they're safe. Chew away!)

    And how much of your life will you spend on the toilet? About a year - so bring a good book. (I recommend this one.)

    So sit back, relax, put on some rubber gloves, and let a doctor take you on a poo (and puke) filled tour of your insides. Welcome to Kay's Anatomy*.

    *a fancy word for your body. See, you're learning already.

Adam Kay is a multi-award-winning writer, comedian and former doctor. His first book, an undergraduate textbook called Rapid Obstetrics and Gynaecology didn't do particularly well, but his next two did rather better. This is Going to Hurt has sold over two million copies, been translated into 37 languages, and is the bestselling narrative nonfiction title of the decade, spending over a year at number one in the Sunday Times bestseller chart. It is soon to be a major BBC comedy-drama. His follow-up, Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas, sold over 500,000 copies in the last three months of 2019, and saw him become the first author to have simultaneous Sunday Times number ones for both hardback and paperback nonfiction titles.
