The most complete Italian-language menu translator available, plus great restaurant picks for Italy’s major cities and towns! It isn’t the chicken you thought you ordered. It’s a plate of cold brains. Nor is it the delectable slices of beef braised in red wine; those are veal kidneys. These are the pitfalls of ordering off a menu in a foreign country. To prevent just such accidents, we give you Andy Herbach’s "Eating & Drinking in Italy." This guide offers the most complete Italian-language menu translator available, plus great restaurant picks for Italy’s major cities and towns! Menus written in a foreign language are confusing and filled with slang and idioms. Uccelli scappatti are skewered sausages grilled with sage, but the word means “escaped birds.” Stinco is braised veal or pork shank. Nothing can make a trip more enjoyable and rewarding than being able to order a great meal without having an anxiety attack. The new 7th edition of Eating & Drinking in Italy includes: • A great (and down-to-earth) restaurant guide • A comprehensive Italian-menu translator • Advice on restaurant etiquette • A short pronunciation guide • Opinions on everything food-related, from what to eat to where to get it…

Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress. As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.
