New Castle, PA News, October 22, 1996

"...a CD-ROM designed to answer questions that you or your children might have about human biology. The disc presents 41 mysteries broken up into four topics: body, curiosities, mind and sickness which answer questions such as 'Why does hair turn gray?' or 'Why does a leg fall asleep?' Engaging animation and graphics plus several activities make discovering the answers lots of fun."
