This is a book for tall people and those who care about them. Being tall coincides with considerable professional, athletic, and social benefits. Yet there are also some problems, and these raise some questions. For instance, if longer levers and more cells really are behind increased risk of injuries and cancer, then how is it that giraffes get by? Why is it that society reveres tall stature but then compromises our safety with cramped cars and airplane seats? And why on Earth have doctors been shrinking tall women? Lastly, what can be done about all this? These questions and more will all be answered by a tall protagonist over six chapters: Evolution, Ergonomics, Spine, Growth, Longevity, and Society.
