    1. by and large, I enjoyed it. This is a quick read as it is short (8 chapters and 90 pages long), but it is jam-packed with information and written in a very readable, entertaining style.

    2. I enjoyed the history of the coffee houses. I never knew there would be a book written about something trivial. However, upon reading the book, I found that it really isn't trivial at all much to follow through out the centuries. I was amazed that so much could be unearthed. I enjoyed this book very much.
