Pros: Funny, bordering on riotous, balanced by coffee wisdom stirred throughout
Cons: Some repetition of coffee facts
Coffee is the lifeblood of the urban adventurer, the 9 to 5 crowd, the far flung romantic and the millions that rely on coffee's delivery of invigorating brain juice conveyed in a flavorful mouth hug. Ryoko Iwata explains coffee's goodness in brilliant clarity second only to her dose of clowning, playfulness in Coffee Gives Me Superpowers.

In the succinct 93-page illustrated primer, Iwata covers everything you ever wanted to know about the coffee bean (it's a fruit!), who drinks the most, what your drink says about you (watch out soymilk drinkers!), when to drink the hot stuff, who exactly is Joe and how much will, in fact, kill you. Iwata's crispy details sourced from all over are packaged with Matt Inman's (The Oatmeal) cheeky and, often, mocking illustrations. Coffee as a boyfriend? Covered! Jabs at Starbucks? Of course! Silly myths (like, keeping coffee in the freezer)? Debunked.

Cooks the world around depend on the life-giving properties of good, not-so-good and even downright deplorable coffee to keep the steam in the kitchen engine flowing. Coffee Gives Me Superpowers satisfies our natural culinary curiosity into the second most traded product in the world.
