I give this book 5 stars even though there are some weak sections in it, because it is a significant contribution to the field of Circadian Rhythm research, explained for lay people. Although the weight loss chapter probably is getting the most press, his information on developing an optimal sleep cycle is really significant and useful, as well as really valuable chapters on exercise/movement and rest cycles, and learning/studying cycles. We are just beginning to scratch the surface of understanding the importance of Circadian Rhythms in developing optimal health and well being. I would say the weakest section of the book is his dietary recommendations - it would have been better if he had a nutritionist write that chapter, because, although he is pretty conventional in recommending vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean proteins, he just skips over dairy, other than mentioning that he adds some cottage cheese to his breakfast. The dietary recommendations seem to be the foods Dr. Panda likes. I still think this is a useful book to read and to refer to in its overall assessment of Circadian Rhythms and how they affect our health.
