Actually I only read about one third of it and just got tired of it. I am not a fan of short stories and I guess I'm not a fan of rambling collection of essays that seem to have little in common other than some mention of coffee. The essays I did read were reasonably well written, although some were rather dry. Overall, my low rating for this book is likely more due to my preferring either a single work or a more cohesive collection (this being said by someone who is having a ball with Bill Bryson's "At Home" - go figure).
