They outburn napalm, produce a high that competes with any opiate's, and come in 1,600 varieties, from the innocuous bell to the mighty habanero. In this mouth-watering book Wall Street Journal reporter Amal Naj pursues his subject from Bolivia to New Mexico, interviews growers, botanists, chefs, and doctors; and even chronicles a long and acrimonious lawsuit that has raged around the use of the term "Tabasco." Includes an Index. "Reading Mr. Naj's book, one can understand how the pepper comes to seem an essential part of life. . . . Bring on the habanero!" - The New York Times

(Key Words: Hot Peppers, Amal Naj, Food Habits, Serranos, Poblanos, Mexico, McIlhenny Company, Jalapenos, Tobasco, Spices, Habaneos, Ayurvedic Medicine, Capsaicin).
