This is a great introduction to the material and is highly recommended. The other reviewer erroneously selected the book for the wrong level of student and then blames the authors.

This is a wonderful text on biological clocks. It begins with a great introduction and a wide range of very interesting examples of clocks in a wide range of organisms and explanations of the terminologies used to describe different elements of chronobiology, then moves on to the details of clocks and how they function, evolve and operate at the molecular level. I very highly recommend this text for anyone new to the subject and at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level, most of the content would be tough for many undergrads- hence the rather unfair ranking by another reviewer.

I bought this book for class, and I suppose many people will need to purchase it for the same reason and while it does have good information, most of it is easily found elsewhere.

I used this for an undergraduate psychology course where the only prerequisite was Intro to Psych. The course was a nightmare, but the textbook is impossible to read. It is written for graduate level scientists.
