Refinetti goes to great lengths in defining and explaining many basic concepts with no presumption that undergraduates who would be interested in the subfield of circadian biology would have already covered most of these topics: for example, scientific methods, research ethics, statistics. This probably makes the book easily readable and interesting for some motivated high school students and people with very little science background
This book is seventh heaven for visually oriented learners.
-Mehmet Dokucu, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 51, No. 43, October 2006
Although the size of the book has been expanded three-fold the popular overall structure of the first edition has been maintained, with five sections covering history and methodology, phemonenology, mechanisms, substrates, and practical applications. Each chapter has extensive tables, figures, photographs . New features of the second edition include discussions of retinal photoreceptors, non-hypothalamic circadian pacemakers, and genomic and proteomic mechanisms. the text remains one of the few comprehensive and scientific introductions to circadian physiology that are currently available, and it should remain in popular demand .
--Roy J. Shepard, Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology, Vol. 20, Issue 1
praise for the first edition

-- James W. Kalat Biological Psychology, 8th Edition
