On The Back:

For coffee lovers and those who love them, Coffee Gives Me Superpowers is a fun, graphic design-centered book focused on one of the world’s most addictive and beloved substances–coffee.

If coffee is the foundation of your food pyramid, then this is your book. Inspired by Ryoko Iwata’s popular Web site, I Love Coffee (en.ilovecoffee.jp), Coffee Gives Me Superpowers is overflowing with infographics and fun, interesting facts about the most awesome beverage on earth written by Ryoko, a Japanese coffee-lover living in Seattle.  The book includes the most popular pieces on the site, such as “Your Brain on Beer vs. Coffee,” “10 Coffee Myths,” “The 15 Most Caffeinated Cities in the U.S.,” “The Best Time of Day to Drink Coffee (According to Science),” and “10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know about Caffeine,” plus 25 percent new, original material that is available only in this book.

My Thoughts:

*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley*

I loved this book; from the amazing illustrations to the amazing facts this book was a winner! I loved how the author incorporated so much information into so little space and, by using illustrations, the author made this book interesting and fun to read. Overall this book would make a great gift and an even better coffee table book. I’d definitely recommend it!
