Editorial Reviews


"Christopher G. Moore is an excellent writer, and his style in this collection reminds me of Bill Bryson and Dave Barry, though Moore's subject matter remains more deeply thought provoking..."
--Lang Reid, Pattaya Mail

"[Moore's] experience and in-depth knowledge of the country really shines through, providing intriguing insights into a vast range of subjects - culture, politics, psychology, crime, history - to name just a few. Moore's writing style is easily read and hugely entertaining, whilst still being incredibly informative."
--Bangkok Best

"One of Moore's greatest strengths ... is his knowledge of Southeast Asian history."

"Moore's work doesn't flinch from cultural detail or complex social analysis. He takes chances, lots of them."
--International Herald Tribune

"The most important recreator of Thailand for a Western audience."
--Vancouver Sun
