Glaser's Biophysics is an excellent introductory book to the whole field. I think it was written specifically to suit the needs of beginners.
Even though that part Glaser's Biophysics is an excellent introductory book to the whole field. Even though that part starts on quantum-mechanical terrain, it's nothing to worry about. It's a story, with very little formulas, and I've yet to notice a wave function somewhere. Because it's basically a story, it works great for understanding orbitals or the processes in photosynthesis.
The second part, "Energetics and dynamics of biological systems", is a mix of thermodynamics, dynamics and bioenergetics. The thermodynamical set-up is done thoroughly and with a liberal dose of partial derivatives sprinkled in.

Afterwards, it's a fine melange of fluxes, forces, Onsager's relations, equilibriums, various potentials, diffusions The last two parts might not be included in a regular biophysics course, but I found them interesting, especially the last part which discusses models of evolution and neural processes. Though for regular student, there is more then enough to study in the first two parts. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
About Roland Glaser. Roland Glaser. The principles of electrostatics are used to explain some of the basic units of structure on a molecular level. Comprised of nine chapters, this book opens with an overview of the concepts and structures of biochemistry, with particular reference to different structural biochemical groups and how they are used as building blocks in forming molecules.
The following chapters discuss the basics of elementary electrostatics; dielectric constants and dipoles; the dipole moments of biomolecules; van der Waals forces; and Debye-Huckel theory. Water and water structure are also considered from a physical standpoint. The final chapter is devoted to experimental techniques that rely upon the electrical properties of biomolecules and explains what types of information can be obtained from each experimental form.
