Bill Bryson OBE

Bill Bryson OBE

In his newest book, The Body: A guide for occupants, Bill sets off to explore the human body, how it functions and its remarkable ability to heal itself.

Bill completed research for the book here in Nottingham at the Queen’s Medical Centre, with the support of many academics from the University. His experiences at the University form the basis for one of the book’s chapters and are referenced throughout.

His talk, entitled Travels Around my Body, saw Bill discuss the book and his research here at Nottingham.
