Very informative and an easy to listen.
I can honestly say I learned a whole lot about caffeine while listening to this audio. I am a daily coffee drinker and had no idea about the effects of caffeine on the body. As woman I especially found the information about caffeine and its effects on women’s bodies very informative.
Additionally, the reference studies use/given in the audio were eye-opening and easy to understand. If you are a person who likes resource detail you will find a great deal of them here. The case studies used are very informative.
Also I found the “voice – narrative - person -” easy to listen to. I was not bored and I would recommend this audio greatly.
My favorite part was the information about caffeine effects on women’s bodies. I had no idea that there was a connection.
This is a rather long audio and I listened to it in several parts before finishing it.
I would recommend this audio for the information it gives about caffeine effects on women’s bodies
A dire warning for caffeine abusers
The over abundance of anecdotal evidence does not lend itself to a reference utility nor is it fascinating story telling. Most people do not consider themselves abusers, but the addictive qualities of coffee's caffeine delivery should not be ignored.
The effect of presenting only the dark side of caffeine's efficacy was amply illustrated by the cancer scare of the eighties. As with most moderate stimulants, prudent analyses suggests little or no causal connection to the disease if taken in moderation.
clarity, precision, easy listening
I became dulled by the long list of anecdotal findings. Not clear where the book was headed or why it was organized this way.
Needs more stream lining. Coffee is bad for its abusers is hardly a headline. A more balanced presentation (e.g. good points about caffeine) would allow the reader to make a more effective judgement.
