Don''t sound like "una momia"--add a little sizzle to your Spanish!

If someone called you "tragaldabas" would you be insulted or flattered? If you shouted "Mota!" in the street, would you expected to get a cab or get arrested? Thanks to "The Red-Hot Book of Spanish Slang and Idioms," you''ll always know your "tejemaneje" (scheme) from your "merequetengue" (mess) no matter where you find yourself in the Spanish-speaking world. Five thousand words and phrases--plus helpful hints as to what''s cordial and what''s vulgar--keep you in sync with Spanish slang.
