NONFICTION

The Unseen Body brings read­ers on a unique jour­ney nav­i­gat­ing our insides like an explor­er dis­cov­er­ing a new world. Each chap­ter is about one spe­cif­ic body part or bod­i­ly flu­id, and each com­bines sto­ries from Dr. Reisman’s med­ical train­ing and career with sto­ries about trav­el, cul­ture, nature, and food.

His writ­ing has appeared in The New York TimesThe Wash­ing­ton PostSlate and Dis­cov­er Mag­a­zine.
