Is there a simple way to time a function call in elisp?

I found exactly what I was looking for at http://nullprogram.com/blog/2009/05/28/

(defmacro measure-time 
    (&rest 
     body)
  "Measure and return the running time of the code block."
  (declare (indent defun)) 
  (let ((start (make-symbol "start"))) 
    `(let ((,start (float-time))) ,@body (- (float-time) ,start))))
