The book has no flow and from the early pages feels like a badly assembled essay: a bit of this and a bit of that... the research is poor and US-centric: 10 lines devoted to history and habits of coffee drinking in Italy? really?
The reason Igot it was it was available on Kindle. But seriously - save the money and get the much better written and research Uncommon Grounds.

The Bible of all other coffee books 14 May 1998
By Sandi Williams (boomer@gulftel.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The information contained in this book is perhaps the most complet and concise information on the subject. While it was written nearly 75 years ago there is no other work that is more complet. If I could rate it a 12 I would have. A must for any coffee profeciadnoda.

WHAT A WASTE 10 July 2013
By Kenneth Buschmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
All about coffee re-defines the word ALL. The word abridged is more accurate. I have been doing extensive work on coffee for months in preparation for a patent application. I have downloaded 100's of times more information than that book contained. UKER'S original text (the unabridged version) is available on Google at no cost. This book was a waste of my time and money. If I could get my money back I would take it in second.

Good buy cheaper than available in Australia 6 Sept. 2008
By Andy Samuels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bought as a birthday present for my son who is already on the path to becoming an experienced Barista. He was thrilled to get the book and finds the book very informative and is already sharing the knowledge held within this essential manual with fellow baristas. Very fast postage to Australia and much cheaper than I can buy here. The book was wrapped thoughtfully and arrived in A1 condition. Great book would recommend to anyone interested in knowing all about coffee.

It has full breath of information on coffee which is what I was investigating. The health impacts of coffee could be expanded.
