For many of us, the mere thought of going without our daily caffeine is enough to send us into a cold sweat.

Enter Michael Pollan, who gave up the drug in coffee and (in lesser amounts) tea, for three months — cold turkey — for his new audiobook, Caffeine.

Read an abridged version of the conversation or the full transcript on NPR’s website, or listen to the segment below.
