I was given this book by a publisher who contacted me on Facebook.

I have to say that this book was well researched and full of facts, but past that I pretty much hated it. I am a coffee drinking who consumes about 4 cups a day, and was unimpressed or unchanged by the data given in the book. It reminded me of a paper a friend of mine had to write for his college class last year. This was not a ground breaking book about something we did not know, or showing a side of it we have not seen. The facts were ones I have heard before, and in a way they did not fit in the book sometimes. Like pregnant women should not drink coffee...DUH! Not to mention the idea that cancer may or may not be caused by coffee....basically it was like a moot point since there was not enough evidence to go one way or the other. Also, talking about deaths were people over dosed on caffeine. People have also died from too much water, or not going to the bathroom! When you eat a caffeine powder or energy drink and get the equivalent of 100 cups of course you are going to die....but NO ONE is sitting at home in the morning having their morning cup and going into cardiac arrest....

All in all this was not something I found joy in reading, will not read again, and honestly it just made me look forward to my next cup of coffee! ( )
