[and] traces the century-long quest to unravel their mechanism, with some startling outcomes.”—Anne Underwood, Newsweek “The writing is clean, clever, and . . . evocative . . . .What I loved most about this book is how clearly it highlights the body’s incontrovertible allegiance to the daily and seasonal rhythms around it.”—Anthony Doerr, Boston Sunday Globe “Biology buffs will marvel at the fascinating material, and medical professionals should put [this] at the top of their must-read lists.”—Publishers Weekly
