What did the judges think?

"It’s awesome of course, because it’s our body. This book explains the magic of our body, except it’s not magic, of course, it’s science. It helps us see how things that are amazing can be explained scientifically and how they work. From things we don’t think about like breathing, to things we actively do, like running. It puts what’s awesome about our bodies into perspective too. Why have we evolved in a certain way and how they compare to other animals? We can learn what’s going on in our bodies and how we perceive the world."
