Curious about the World Around You?

If you are curious about whether or not acupuncture and other alternative medicines really work, this is the book for you!
Your Inner Fish is an excellent book which explains how humans are more like other animals than one might think. For instance, did you know that our ear is very similar to that of a shark? I read this book a few years ago, and it still stands as one of the best book.
