Journalist Tony Horowitz went to Arabia without a job, and spent two years visiting 13 Muslim countries and Israel, writing copy for whoever could be persuaded to take it. Not long after he arrived in Yemen he was advised never to drink the water, eat the food or chew the hallucinatory leaf Qat. Unfortunately Tony had to confess he had already done all three. This book contains Horowitz's often amusing observations and insights as a result of his travels.
