The only book I have seen that was close to this subject is: Tobacco Use in Shisha: Studies on Waterpipe Smoking in Egypt

I guess it is more about the health aspect of hookah smoking.

Lots of books are wrtten Turkish, Arabic and Hindi on the subject and a few in German but i've never seen anything in English except for a couple of very rare books made by the British when they ran India and those are great. The problem is that when you find something decent the cost is shocking and more often then not I can't read it.

I get all of my hookah knowledge at hookahpro.com
other than that i just use what's available to smoke.
as far as reading "books" maybe there is something online that you could find that would be "readble"
let us know what you come up with.

Yea, i would try to stay away from the internet other than hookahpro for looking up facts. No one knows hookah better than we do. Theres just soo much bullsh*t out there about these tests done on hookah, but all of them burn the shisha. Theres also the herbal shisha, but then theres theories that they could be harmful cause of the sugar cane. Most of this stuff we came up with as a knowledgeable forum. Im not going to trust too many other places.

Funny thing is that my very good hookah friend read on the web supposedly on a few or many websites that smoking hookah for more than an hour equals to 100 cigarettes. Which I believe is complete bs and I told him that would only be possible when the shisha is burning. But he doesn't know wat to believe now and decided to stop for a while.

Please just confirm that it doesn't equal out to 100 cigarettes lol. I know the cons of smoking and fully understand that it isn't good for you(health wise).

Yea, i had a friend stop smoking hookah because of this. I tried to explain but its hard to deny an article on the internet and accept it from someone you know. I mean, volume wise....yes, but all the hookah smoke is not just from tobacco, its the glycerin and honey smoking.

yea, some people just wont ever get it.

How bad do you have to mess up for an hour of hookah to equal 100 cigs? Like put dry ice in base and light 4 QL's on the bowl? While letting the foil touch the tobacco? lol

That's the only way to smoke, hearing your lungs crying in pain. Its the best.

If you've ever chain smoked cigarettes it would be quite obvious in the difference between 100 cigs and a hour sesh. You feel like shit after a quarter of the cigs, I've never felt like shit after an hour sesh unless it was terrible QLs.
