Coffee Gives Me Superpowers

An Illustrated Book about the Most Awesome Beverage on Earth

Ryoko Iwata

Andrews McMeel Publishing

ISBN: 9781449460839



For coffee lovers and those who love them, Coffee Gives Me Superpowers is a fun, graphic design-centered book focused on one of the world’s most addictive and beloved substances–coffee.


If coffee is the foundation of your food pyramid, then this is your book. Inspired by Ryoko Iwata’s popular Web site, I Love Coffee (, Coffee Gives Me Superpowers is overflowing with infographics and fun, interesting facts about the most awesome beverage on earth written by Ryoko, a Japanese coffee-lover living in Seattle. The book includes the most popular pieces on the site, such as “Your Brain on Beer vs. Coffee,” “10 Coffee Myths,” “The 15 Most Caffeinated Cities in the U.S.,” “The Best Time of Day to Drink Coffee (According to Science),” and “10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know about Caffeine,” plus 25 percent new, original material that is available only in this book.



My View:

I learnt a few coffee facts, some myths were dispelled and I had fun! The descriptions of the various type of coffees was very useful – I need to have this book with me the next time I order a coffee at a café. (And the coffee calorie count info was mind blowing!)

  1. Oh, this does sound interesting, Carol! And, speaking as one of those for whom coffee is a major food group, it’s probably very informative too. ‘Though I’m not sure I want to know how many calories certain coffees ‘cost’ me 🙂
