Be an informed caffeine user

If you are going to do it, do it right! Dr. James Wyatt says, "I hate to say it, but most of the population is using caffeine the wrong way by drinking a few mugs of coffee or tea in the morning... The physiological process they need to counteract is not a major player until the latter half of the day." Drink coffee all the time not just in the morning, silly.

If you want the full story of caffeine from the history of the cultivation and use of the drug, to its socio-historical importance (caffeine and the industrial revolution?), to the science behind my favorite alkaloid, you must read Weinberg and Bealer's The world of caffeine: The science and culture of the world's most popular drug. If reading is not your thing, just get the t-shirt.
