Whether you're a beginner or an advanced speaker, this nifty book can help add hundreds of words to your Thai vocabulary. It's too good of a resource to pass up." --:ang Reid / Chiang Mai Mail newspaper
"I studied the list last night, and appreciate it even more now. It's certainly a valuable resource for understanding how Thais form sounds and syllables. It should help a lot in learning the language. It's amazing the work you put into it. And it helps me understand how the Thais speak." --Peter in Bangkok
About the Author
More About the Author
Each one of Ken's eight books is on a different topic from the others. There's a book about Thai language, a book about farmsteading, another is a parody about a megalomaniacal politician (based on true events), and yet another which is a novel about a Burmese seductress who gets lost and found in a California wilderness. He's also written a book about nuclear power plants (why we should forgo them), and another about a Tibetan Buddhist saint. His latest is titled 'Hong Kong, What if....?' articulates how, with just a couple small changes, HK would have remained a British Colony.
When not writing, Ken is often enmeshed in outdoor projects which relate to rural properties he's secured in northernmost Thailand. The projects entail unusual construction methods for innovative structures, finding and developing rock climbing crags, building 3-rope bridges connecting trees and cliffs, and the occasional 200 meter zip line through the forest. To know Ken is to realize; if he wound up leaving nothing more of a legacy than some outdoor contraptions which would make some children happy, then that would be a recipe for a fulfilled life.

I could not have been more wrong. What I received was a photocopy, yes a photocopy of what I assume to be the original book and not a good photocopy either. Most of the Thai script is so small it is barely legible and many pages can hardly be opened due to the crude stapling effort. I could not believe what I had received from Amazon as a 'new book'. Someone in the Quality Control department needs to take a look at this and return whatever is in stock to the author, if you can find him, that is.
As for the contents, it's more or less what was advertised, although the addition of a number of not-very-amusing cartoons by the author leaves one wondering why they were included at all. Also, notice how the cover image shows "700 Thai Words..." while the title is "600 Thai Words...". There's something really unprofessional about this whole enterprise.
