The book is witty and full of insight and advice about caffeine and alcohol. A must read for people curious about the two most popular drugs on the planet.
And, the guy has a sense of humor!!
I would say that the book is weakly conceived and poorly structured. Basically, the first half is about alcohol ,the second half is about caffeine. That's it - it's almost like two separate books stuck together. The material is clear and interesting, if a bit old by now. It just lacks a sense of direction. On the plus side it shows he is not grinding any kind of axe or spinning you his theory, just cleaving to a standard interpretation of the literature on what the effects of these drugs are.
Don't expect much discussion of the sociology, history or politics. This is not the book for that. But I think the writer succeeds really well at what he sets out to do, which is communicate the science, so I'll give it 5 stars.
