as far as literary documentaries go, this was very well done. it tells the story of caffeine through the ages from chocolate to energy drinks (and the subsequent delivery mechanisms available today), the science behind the ingestion of this drug, and many of the battles/controversy over its distribution/regulation.

I would advise anyone who drinks Monster, Red Bull, or any other energy drink to read this before you pick up another can. ( )
