A History of the World in 6 Glasses

by Tom Standage

This one's an interesting little book that looks at six influential beverages: beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea and Coca-Cola. Mr. Standage looks at each drink's place in history--how it shaped and was shaped by the cultures around them. As a history fan, it was fun to read about something besides wars and politics. Of course, reading it also made me a bit thirsty...

Check it out.
