I don’t generally drink too many energy drinks, but as someone who is both interested in food science and is always trying to squeeze those extra hours of alertness into my day, I gave this title a read. It offered some fresh viewpoints that I hadn’t previously considered and the author does a fine job of presenting an unbiased story. Good stuff!
