About this book

– Shortlisted for the 2019 André Simon Food & Drink Book Awards

"Like a new Bill Bryson, she offers an easy sharing of deep knowledge, with humour, where one learns things in a gentle way without it feeling like learning."
– Dan Jago, judge of the André Simon Food & Drink Book Awards

"Hot or cold, caffeinated, alcoholic, sweet or not, this book provides a fascinating cultural history of our favourite drinks, and explores the science (or not) underpinning their many health claims. A wonderful read!"
– Dr Giles Yeo, author of Gene Eating

"A truly engaging read. By dispelling common health misconceptions and debunking bad science, Drinkology arms us with information to make better choices about what we drink, not just what we eat."
– Ian Marber

"Very engaging and entertaining [...] a clear guide to everything we need to know about drinks, from water to milk, tea, alcohol and beyond. Dr Willett dispels common myths and fads and sets the record straight [...] allowing us to make fully informed choices. A fascinating deep dive into the science behind everything we drink."
– Elisabeth Cresta and Caroline Day, founders of Fight the Fads

Biography

Dr Alexis Willett is a science communicator who aims to make science accessible to all. She has a PhD in biomedical science from the University of Cambridge, where she studied at the Medical Research Council's Human Nutrition Research unit. She's taught human physiology and published on a wide range of health subjects. Alexis spends much of her time turning cutting-edge research and health policy jargon into something meaningful for the public, patients, doctors and policymakers. In her spare time, Alexis drinks a lot of rooibos tea.

Her first book, How Much Brain Do We Really Need?, with Jennifer Barnett, was published by Robinson in December 2017.
