Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite

Coffee for Consciousness: The Application of Perspective to Reality by Vito Mucci begins with a declaration: we should see ourselves not as a body having spiritual experiences but as a soul having material experiences. True to this, the author explains the relationship we maintain with animate and inanimate objects as the prime decision makers when it comes to what we do, how we feel etc. The book analyzes at length various factors that can influence our thoughts and actions, like intuition, a depersonalizing mind, fear and its control, effective use of anger, forgiveness, our judgmental nature etc. Except for the influencing force that reaches us through contact, by light, by sound, by touch or by smell, all other changes in us are caused by our consciousness.

Coffee has the capacity to keep us awake, and this book keeps us awake to enjoy our consciousness, as is perhaps intended by the author. He has tried to seek answers to questions that look obvious once he asks them in simple, elegant terms of mostly common sense. For example, why do some people ignore the advice they receive, even after paying for it. He produces a classic answer too: happiness does not happen always as intended; yet sabotaging our lives works every time. This book needs to be read more than once, I think, and on each occasion, these ideas can be seen in a different dimension, a different perspective. A rich glossary is provided with the book and I found it very useful, as most of the topics discussed needed some form of elucidation.
