on life in Thailand. Very educational but some parts of the book did not grab me.
I would recommend it to anyone planning a visit to Thailand to get a feel for the land and the people.
I think the cover could have been better, looks like a cheap noir novel instead of a great memoir.
The good thing about this book, is that there is no particular order or sequence with which you should read it. Skip the chapters that bore you. Pick out the chapters that interest you. There is no central theme. Some chapters sound like confessions. Some sound like serious journalism and some even sound like history lessons. Nevertheless, humour and a reader-friendly approach are the main selling points here. Compared to Bizarre Thailand : Tales of Crime, Sex and Black Magic, this is a lighter and slightly easier read, so I won't list the chapters.
Like many books in this genre, there are also attempts to highlight some mind-boggling aspects of Thai culture, customs and practices. Hopkins did a marvellous job here. A great read for anyone on vacation in Thailand.

I read this book before going to Thailand and it really did help me out when I arrived and stayed there for two weeks. I like the humor and sarcasm and it opened my eyes to different cultures, customs and lifestyles of the Thai people.
This book is definatly worth a read.
