As Tom Standage relates with easy authority and charm, six of them - beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea and cola - have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history during pivotal epochs. From humankind's adoption of agriculture and the birth of cities to the advent of globalization, Standage reveals the intricate interplay of different civilizations by appreciating each drink as a kind of technology, a catalyst for advancing culture. After reading his clever and enlightened book, you may never look at your favourite drink in quite the same way again.Hide synopsis

The History of the World in 6 Glasses is a beautifully written
book about beverages throughout history. It's a great way
to learn history through one topic, which in this case is
hard and soft drinks. It amused and kept my interest from
beginning to end.
