Overview

Enter the world of chronobiology--the study of the rhythmic cycles that govern our minds and bodies.

Every human being is a finely tuned system of many interlocking inner clocks, each of which maintains a distinct rhythm. Because the concept of time is built into us at the cellular level, biological clocks in your bodies and brains influence our desires and disinclinations, our moods and hungers, our capabilities and vulnerabilities.

Applications of this new science touch upon every aspect of modern life. Physical cycles affect the performance of politicians and business people. Chronobiological adjustments alter the course of mental illnesses, help athletes peak on the day of the game, enable students to learn more efficiently, and can even aid childless couples in starting families.

Know Your Body Clock shows how working with inner rhythms can improve one's personal health and professional productivity. It also underscores how ignoring these rhythms can make a person less efficient and more at risk for disease and emotional illness.
