Hello, Neal Porter! What does it feel like when you open a Jason Chin book for the first time? 

Neal Porter: Opening a new book by Jason is like setting forth on a grand adventure. Your Place in the Universe took us from Mount Everest to distant galaxies to the very edge of space. 
The Universe in You explores the mysteries of the human body, from cellular structure to DNA to molecules, atoms, and elementary particles and back again. I look forward to inviting young readers along for the ride.—Neal Porter, Vice President and Publisher of Neal Porter
