Introducing Biological Energetics is a novel, interdisciplinary text that presents biological understanding in terms of general underlying principles, treating energy as the overarching theme and emphasizing the all-pervading influence of energy transformation in every process, both living and non-living. Key processes and concepts are explained in turn, culminating in a description of the overall functioning and regulation of a living cell. The book rounds off the story of life with a brief account of the endosymbiotic origins of eukaryotic cells, the development of multicellularity, and the emergence of modern plants and animals.
Multidisciplinary research in science is becoming commonplace. However, as traditional boundaries start to break down, researchers are increasingly aware of the deficiencies in their knowledge of related disciplines. Introducing Biological Energetics redresses the reciprocal imbalance in the knowledge levels of physical and biological scientists in particular. Its style of presentation and depth of treatment has been carefully designed to unite these two readerships.

Norman Cheetham has extensive science teaching experience at Secondary School, Teachers' College and University level. He has contributed chapters to three science text books used in Australian Secondary Schools, and developed the chemistry sections of a set of overhead projector-based teaching materials. Until retirement, he was an Associate Professor in the School of Chemistry, the University of NSW, Sydney, where he taught courses in food chemistry, polymer chemistry, carbohydrates, drug analysis, and instrumental techniques. He is now an Adjunct Professor at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, and is still involved in teaching and research.
"(Cheetham) has a knack of explaining the physics and chemistry of these complex interactions in a most digestible form, thus providing a firm basis for general biologists." -- Bulletin of the British Technological Society
