COFFEE REPLACES BEER AS BREAKFAST DRINK
The above refers to the history of coffee and at one time most people drank beer for breakfast. (OH, the good ole days).
The biggest problem with this book is all the May, might, and could's that are included and the lack of fact. I do not blame the author and am glad she wrote the book. Studies cost a lot of money and many studies are paid for by large corporations. The coffee companies are not going to pay for a study on how coffee is bad for you. Often when you hear on the news that a study showed something is good for you, that can be traced back to a company that will benefit.
If even one of the cancers that the author says could be caused by coffee is true, it is worth giving up. Heart disease seems to be even more likely. I know that coffee causes my blood pressure to go up. I have quit several times, but usually end up going back. I spend hours on the road, love the taste of coffee, and nothing else seems to satisfy. Yet, I went ahead and quit a week ago. If I know it raises my blood pressure, it can't be healthy. Last year at this time I was drinking 40 ounces a day. Months ago, I cut back to 20 ounces and know I have quit it all together. I am lucky, that I have not suffered any side effects. Many people get headaches and/or feel tired. I have not had that problem and have been drinking tea. Tea does not satisfy as well and I still crave coffee, but for my health!
It is not so much the caffeine, but the delivery system. Decaf is even worse for you. This is not a long book and it is worth your time to listen and decide for yourself. It could save your life.

It'll Make You Think
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
It is very educational and informative. I learned things about coffee I didn't know before and made me glad I stopped drinking it years ago.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
It will make you think before going down to the corner to get coffee.

Do not buy this awful book. Simply Google "coffee health" and see pros and cons of coffee to your health. I have studied coffee and the speciality coffee industry for 13years and herdly any of the information provided is in this book is reliable. I had hoped to learn something but was left irritated by the vast amount of misinformation. Total waste of time.
