Book Excerpt :

There are some of us who can’t even stand to look at them—and others who can’t live without them: chillies have been searing tongues and watering eyes for centuries in innumerable global cuisines. In this book, Heather Arndt Anderson explores the many ways nature has attempted to take the roofs of our mouths off—from the deceptively vegetal-looking jalapeno to the fire-red ghost pepper—and the many ways we have gleefully risen to the challenge. Anderson tells the story of the spicy berry’s rise to prominence, showing that it was cultivated and venerated by the ancient people of Mesoamerica for millennia before Spanish explorers brought it back to Europe. She traces the chilli’s spread along trading routes to every corner of the globe, and she explores the many important spiritual and cultural links that we have formed with it, from its use as an aphrodisiac to, in more modern times, an especially masochistic kind of eating competition. Ultimately, she uses the chili to tell a larger story of global trade, showing how the spread of spicy cuisine can tell us much about the global exchange—and sometimes domination—of culture. Mixing history, botany, and cooking, this entertaining read will give your bookshelf just the kick it needs.

This book contains information on plant-based nutrients and phytochemicals in vegetable crops that are commonly consumed. The information generated by researchers using modern methods of biochemical analysis and results, mostly validated using cell line cultures or animal models, and to a limited extent on human volunteers have been presented. The vegetable crops have been grouped based on the family they belong to, because most often members of the same family have similar biomolecules as active ingredients and have similar effects on health. The book will help students/researchers/scientists and common man alike to look at the vegetables as protective foods, not just because it is said so, but with a scientific explanation.

Book Short Summary:

In this compelling biography, Peter Griffin draws on a wealth of previously unpublished material--including numerous letters and five of Hemingway's early short stories that appear in their entirety--to trace the formative years of one of America's most celebrated and influential authors. Along with Youth examines in richer detail than any previous account Hemingway's midwestern childhood, his relations with his parents, his journalistic apprenticeship, and his experiences as a Red Cross volunteer in Italy during World War I. It sheds new light on his wartime romance with Agnes von Kurowsky, his first love (and a model for the character of Catherine Barkley in A Farewell to Arms), as well as on the circumstances surrounding his wounding and convalescence. It closes with Hemingway on the brink of the literary career that would bring him worldwide fame. The five short stories--"The Mercenaries," "Crossroads," "Portrait of an Idealist in Love," "The Ash Heel's Tendon," and "The Current"--reveal that the Hemingway vision and style preceded the 1920s, his Paris years with Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. The book also contains many other newly uncovered documents--including letters written by Ernest to his closest friend, Bill Horne, before and after the Kurowsky love affair--which provide a rich new perspective on Hemingway's emotional development and his beginnings as a writer. Jack Hemingway, Ernest's son by his first wife, Hadley Richardson, made his mother's complete correspondence available to Griffin and also contributed a foreword in which he writes, "[Griffin] has shown me insights into my own father's character and behavior I would not have thought possible in view of the time lapse between Hemingway's death and the research he accomplished." This is the first installment of a projected three-volume life which promises to be the definitive Hemingway biography for this generation.

Book Short Summary:

Peppered Minds is about the journey of a young geologist, Neeraj, beginning his professional life. His imaginative mind conjures up a thesis presented on a brainstorming session for the welfare of his countrymen and the nation. The book provides an interesting insight to explain blatant problems that contribute to the lack of innovation, misconduct and all kinds of frenzy we see around today. The writing of the book is a lighthearted account of the protagonist, Neeraj, brought up in a conservative middle-class god-fearing family, who travels from Jaipur to Hyderabad to start his professional life as a geologist. The story depicts his bitter and heartening experiences, be it meeting an astrologer, making a railway reservation, going on a rail journey from Jaipur, joining up at his new office in Hyderabad or eventually completing a successful geological expedition in the wild. Neeraj’s tryst with the various characters along his brief journey brings to light the mind set, personal traits, beliefs and culture of a vast cross section of the ordinary public that span age groups ranging from the child to the octogenarian. The book depicts several interplays of events that envelope the geologists in the office as well as in the field. One of the momentous events that overwhelms Neeraj is his meeting with the Moon and learning of the unbelievable history of human existence on earth. There are also hilarious episodes, including the one which describes the use of kerosene as the basic material for nuclear research.

The Magic of Chillies For Cooking and Healing Table of Contents Introduction What Is the Difference between Chillies and Chili Peppers? How to Grow Chillies. Growing Chillies from Their Seeds What Makes the Chillie so Hot? Why Do People Crave Chillies? Original Traditional Cuisine Including Curries. Spicy Dry Chicken Curry. Red-Hot Thai Curry Paste Massaman Curry Paste Massaman Beef Curry Measuring the Heat of Chillies Chillies for Healing Traditional Winter Hot Oil Chillies Infused Oil Appendix Traditional Hungarian Goulash. Desi Ghee How to Make Coconut Cream Conclusion Author Bio Introduction Why is it to that the word “Chillies” does not conjure up a vista of something really hot, in the Eastern mind, but does so, in the Western mind? That is because few Easterners are particularly fascinated by the heat of chillies, because as they say, Familiarity Breeds Contempt. They are so used to having chillies as a part of the daily cuisine, and in their natural remedies, that it has never been an exotic spice or a herb to them. An Easterner knows that chillies are hot. He knows that he can alleviate the burning sensation by taking a spoonful of yogurt, or a spoonful of sugar. In fact, in 1902, an American pharmacist William Scoville did some research on how many drops of sugar water were needed to alleviate the burning sensation of a hot chili pepper! But in the East, the chillies are just not restricted to their heat content – they are used to give the deep red color to gravies, especially hot red curries and gravies like Goan Vindaloos and Rogan Josh. Eastern sauces and pickles are given their piquancy with a handful of chillies. Some of the milder chillies are stuffed with a mixture of spices and mashed potatoes, and served as a vegetable. Capsicum is a good example of that particular chillie family. Chillies are just not an integral part of Indian cuisine; they are also very popular among the Chinese, the Thais and other oriental and Eastern cuisine, excepting the Japanese. The Japanese, have kept away from the Chillie Revolution, and that is why their food, though delicious and nutritious is comparatively bland in heat content. Thai cuisine is a mixture of heat and herbs and spices. Chillies are just sprinkle on the top of the Thai dishes, to lend color, and flavor. They are also sprinkle on Thai salads in powdered form, to give the salads the touch of hot piquancy.

Book Short Summary:

The way in which we understand and appreciate the world will affect our whole approach to life. Over the last century physical science has shown that the cosmos is quite different from what was previously thought. It is far more stimulating and complex. This book describes how, over the centuries, certain simple observations have affected physical science and mathematics. We are now beginning to unearth mysteries and answers which previously were believed to be beyond solution. But science cannot provide all the answers. After first visiting and then living in Southeast Asia I found a range of different approaches which have proved invaluable when facing the challenges of life. ‘A Chilli Too Far’ was written after completing a cycling tour of Southeast Asia in 2002/3. The region, formerly called ‘Indochina’, contains a wonderful tapestry of cultures – a result of Indian, Muslim and Chinese influences. Such outlooks complement the Western perspective. Although my initial intention was to have some fun, the tour turned out to have unexpected repercussions. I was to discover a variety of positive outlooks when tackling life’s problems and met people from differing cultures who radiated an inner sense of contentment. This book, although basing itself on the way in which physical science has developed over the centuries, attempts to show that a harmony is possible between the Oriental and Western perspectives. This seems to be particularly relevant in an age of ideological tensions.

Book Short Summary:

Drowning in Wheat collects the best of three decades of John Kinsella's astonishing poetry in one volume. Kinsella is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest living Australian poets, and arguably the most important 'eco-poet' of the age; however, this collection also reveals a writer of unexpected and remarkable versatility, and one fluent in an almost bewildering range of forms, registers and voices. Despite its great thematic range, Kinsella's overarching project emerges all the more clearly: Drowning in Wheat is a clarion call and a call to order, a plea to listen to the earth - and to understand our own place within it while we still can. It is also an ideal introduction to one of the essential poets of the age.

Personal Construct Psychology (PCP) was devised by George Kelly in 1955 as a new method in psychotherapy. Since then, his techniques have been applied widely throughout psychology and beyond, to include areas as diverse as nursing, conflict resolution, sociology and literary criticism. This handbook brings together, for the first time, a wide range of theories, research and practice that have grown out of Kelly's original concept. It provides a reference on what has been done and insights into how further applications can be made within psychology and psychotherapy, and also informs non-psychologists and those unfamiliar with Kelly's techniques of its usefulness and applicability in other disciplines. * This is the only comprehensive reference on PCP available * Kelly's work is seminal and widely known * Emphasises practical application to a wide-range of disciplines

Book Short Summary:

RED SUN BLEEDING (Book three in the 'Sliding Void' series) DESCRIPTION It should have all been so easy for Captain Lana Fiveworlds, owner of Fiveworlds Shipping and master of the free trader starship ‘Gravity Rose’. A simple supply run to a mining operation in deep space on a world called Abracadabra. Alright, so the mining operation was illegal and the world unclaimed… that’s why the job paid so damn well. But now she’s stuck on a hothouse jungle planet, sweltering under the light of a dying red sun with not only oddly missing miners, but vanished crewmen too. The exiled barbarian prince Calder Durk had disappeared, presumed dragged over the mining camp’s laser fence by one of the not-so-pleasant local predators. The skipper may or may not be in love with him, but you can never leave one of your own behind. Lana’s android has a bad feeling about the place, and she also has to contend with an arrogant mission leader who is part of humanity’s near immortal super-rich ruling class. Things are looking bad, and that was before the space pirates her rivals have paid to put her out of business jumped in-system looking to hijack her ship. Sadly for the crew of the Gravity Rose, matters can get even worse when they discover why nobody’s ever survived Abracadabra long enough to put it on the charts. For this is one world with a terrible secret. And it just might be the last one for everyone trapped down on the planet. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ABOUT THE AUTHOR Stephen Hunt is the creator of the much-loved 'Far-called' fantasy series (Gollancz/Hachette), as well as the 'Jackelian' series, published across the world via HarperCollins alongside their other best-selling fantasy authors, George R.R.

Book Short Summary:

Winner of the Christopher Ewart-Biggs Literary Award, and nominated for the PEN/JR Ackerley prize. The powerful memoir of a Mullaghmore bombing survivor, as dramatised in THE CROWN ___________________________________ On the August bank holiday weekend in 1979, 14-year-old Timothy Knatchbull went on a boat trip off the shore of Mullaghmore in County Sligo, Ireland, with many members of his family. By noon, an IRA bomb had destroyed the boat, leaving four dead. The author survived, but his grandparents, a family friend, and his 14-year-old twin brother did not. Lord Mountbatten, his grandfather - and uncle to the Duke of Edinburgh - was the target, and became one of the IRA's most high-profile assassinations. In telling this story for the first time, Knatchbull is not only revisiting the terrible events he and his family lived through, but also writing an intensely personal account of human triumph over tragedy. It is a story of recovery, not just from physical wounds but deep emotional trauma. Knatchbull and his parents were too badly injured to attend the funerals of those killed, a sadness that intensified their profound sense of loss. Taking place in Ireland at the height of the Troubles, it gives a compelling insight into that period of Irish history. But more importantly it brings home that although tragedy can strike at any moment, the human spirit is able to forgive, to heal and to move on. It will resonate with readers the world over. ___________________________________ 'From a Clear Blue Sky is a minute by minute story of what happened that day, and what happened afterwards. It is a proper four-hanky bawler, and the exactitude of the story is what makes it so moving ... He provides a convincing account of the extent to which he has been able to accept, forgive and move on. His narrative power is such that the reader can't always share his equanimity. It is a book that is as saddening as it is sad - but much more angering than it is angry' Daily Mail 'This is an extremely moving book. Beyond providing a phenomenally detailed evocation of his own family's trauma, Knatchbull has lots of wise things to say about how we survive horrors - of all kinds - in our lives. He writes with great tenderness and an admirable lack of sentimentality' Zoe Heller 'Affecting and intimate' Mail on Sunday 'Testament to a remarkable, benevolent soul ... With this public love letter he has found a way to say goodbye' The Sunday Times

Book Short Summary:

'An exhilarating compendium of ways to use chilli in your cooking.' Guardian 'There's so much more to chillies than fiery heat and this book proves it with its collection of imaginative recipes.' Good Food "Most people think about chillies in terms of heat and their capacity to blow one's head off. I think about how they can delicately pep up a pile of silky aubergines, perhaps already spiced with cardamom, cinnamon and faint dusting of cumin; how dark, tobacco-flavoured chillies can add deep mysterious tones to molten chocolate, how smoky chillies can add body to slow cooked, unctuous stews and how smoked, sweet peppers can add a note of earthiness to eggs, grilled flatbreads and sautéed greens." Thomasina Miers Chillies can add excitement to the simplest, most frugal ingredients. Chilli Notes is full of recipes that excite and tantalise, comfort and warm. Forget food that is simply there to knock you for six, this book aims to seduce the reader with the power of this humble fruit, even those who profess to loathe the slow burn. Chilli Notes is packed with dishes that you can pull together on a weekday night with ingredients you have lying around. Without long lists of exotic ingredients to stand in your way, Chilli Notes will show you how the chilli can be your exotic bedfellow to add a wonderful, unusual note to your home-cooked family food.

Book Short Summary:

'Wanna cook?' - Walter White'This ain't chemistry - this is art. Cooking is art' - Jesse PinkmanFor five seasons, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman were undisputedly the greatest cooks in North America.

Customers paid top dollar for their product. Connoisseurs came from all over the continent, and even as far afield as Europe, to sample their distinctive blue ice. The partners may have had their detractors but, without a doubt, they were the best of the best.Finally, their knowledge and expertise has been condensed into one easy-to-use cookbook. Everything from the Whites' celebrated cooked breakfast, ASAC Hank Schrader's delicious barbecue, Walter's mouth-watering Heisenburger and Gus Fring's delectable Los Pollos Hermanos fried chicken is broken down to its most basic elements, with step-by-step instructions, lists of ingredients and handy tips gleaned from the series. Copiously illustrated, here is the last word on how to cook like New Mexico's finest.Whether you favour precision and exact measurements, or prefer flair-cooking with a dash of chilli powder, this book has something for everyone - especially if you're 'breaking bad'.

Book Short Summary:

In this era of climate crisis, in which our very futures are at stake, sustainability is a global imperative. Yet we tend to associate sustainability, nature, and the environment with distant places, science, and policy. The truth is that everything is environmental, from transportation to taxes, work to love, cities to cuisine. This book is the first to examine contemporary Singapore from an ecocultural lens, looking at the ways that Singaporean life and culture is deeply entangled with the nonhuman lives that flourish all around us. The authors represent a new generation of cultural critics and environmental thinkers, who will inherit the future we are creating today. From chilli crab to Tiger Beer, Changi Airport to Pulau Semakau, O-levels to orang minyak films, these essays offer fresh perspectives on familiar subjects, prompting us to recognise the incredible urgency of climate change and the need to transform our ways of thinking, acting, learning, living, and governing so as to maintain a stable planet and a decent future.

Book Short Summary:

The Metaphysics of Good and Evil is the first, full-length contemporary defence, from the perspective of analytic philosophy, of the Scholastic theory of good and evil – the theory of Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, and most medieval and Thomistic philosophers. Goodness is analysed as obedience to nature. Evil is analysed as the privation of goodness. Goodness, surprisingly, is found in the non-living world, but in the living world it takes on a special character. The book analyses various kinds of goodness, showing how they fit into the Scholastic theory. The privation theory of evil is given its most comprehensive contemporary defence, including an account of truthmakers for truths of privation and an analysis of how causation by privation should be understood. In the end, all evil is deviance – a departure from the goodness prescribed by a thing’s essential nature. Key Features: Offers a comprehensive defence of a venerable metaphysical theory, conducted using the concepts and methods of analytic philosophy. Revives a much neglected approach to the question of good and evil in their most general nature. Shows how Aristotelian-Thomistic theory has more than historical relevance to a fundamental philosophical issue, but can be applied in a way that is both defensible and yet accessible to the modern philosopher. Provides what, for the Scholastic philosopher, is arguably the only solid metaphysical foundation for a separate treatment of the origins of morality.

Book Short Summary:

In this "vivid and inspiring" NYT bestseller (Newsweek), the Red Hot Chili Peppers' lead singer and songwriter shares a searingly honest account of life in the rock scene's fast lane -- from the darkness into the light. In 1983, four self-described "knuckleheads" burst out of the mosh-pitted mosaic of the neo-punk rock scene in L.A. with their own unique brand of cosmic hardcore mayhem funk. Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world. Though the band has gone through many incarnations, Anthony Kiedis, the group's lyricist and dynamic lead singer, has been there for the whole roller-coaster ride. In Scar Tissue, Kiedis delivers a compelling life story from a man "in love with everything" -- the darkness, the death, the disease. Even his descent into drug addiction was a part of that journey, another element transformed into art. Whether he's honoring the influence of the beautiful, strong women who have been his muses or remembering the roaring crowds of Woodstock and the Dalai Lama's humble compound, Kiedis shares a compelling story about the price of success and excess. Scar Tissue is a story of dedication and debauchery, of intrigue and integrity, of recklessness and redemption -- a story that could only have come out of the world of rock.
