Getting Through The Day When Your Life Is "Caffeinated"

Penguin Books

"I just can't function without my morning coffee."  If you don't say that, you probably know someone who does. 

Journalist Murray Carpenter is among that crowd, now proudly addicted to caffeine for three decades.  Just what IS that stuff? 

In his book Caffeinated: How Our Daily Habit Helps, Hurts, and Hooks Us, Carpenter reveals that a tablespoon of pure caffeine would probably kill you. 

That's one of a great many things he knows and shares in the book. 

Grab a cup of something and join our discussion with him.
