Caffeinated: How Our Daily Habit Helps, Hurts, and Hooks Us is by Murray Carpenter. A must read for those who drink coffee, tea, soda, and other sources of caffeine. At times Carpenter gets a little into the weeds with the science, but the book is easy to understand and follow. You will never look at caffeine in the same way again! Carpenter presents both the good and bad effects of the drug and provides the science from both sides. A well-researched and readable excursion into our favorite addiction.
