Awesome Book: Recommend

What made the experience of listening to The Truth about Caffeine the most enjoyable?

I have a bad reaction to caffeine myself. I've gotten headaches, stay awake for hours, and it is very addicting. This is a book can back up the facts what it does to the body. I highly recommend it to those that want a high peak performance brain and body.

We can't perform at our best if our body and brain aren't functioning 100%. Everyone needs to read this and become aware of the side effects of caffeine.

What other book might you compare The Truth about Caffeine to, and why?

I believe in the Holistic Approach and Keeping the body pure and clean. I haven't come across to many books that get into as many details.

Have you listened to any of Timothy McKean’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No I haven't listened to Timothy Mckean before.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It was just a great reminder to myself why I don't need to drink caffeine.

Any additional comments?

It's a great book to bring awareness to others and explain why we can't perform at our best under the influence of caffeine.

An Eye-Opener

What made the experience of listening to The Truth about Caffeine the most enjoyable?

Gosh, where do I start. I am half way through listening to The Truth About Coffee, and to pause to share my thoughts. Its scary to think of the internal damage drinking coffee does to our body. The author cites research and statistical evidence and anti-dotes to share her concerns about the effect caffeine has on us, and it isnt a pretty picture. I am only half way through so am curious to find out more and hopefully see what alternatives the author offers. But if you are an ardent coffee drinker, this book may well change your daily coffee habit!

Who was your favorite character and why?

This is a non-fiction book/audio, therefore no favourite character.
