Why does a Thai smile at you after crashing into the back of your car?

Why do Thais deplore walking?


The heat, the heat. What about the weather?


Why is everything done as a pack?


What is all this face stuff about?


Lies?


Confrontation?


Sleeping and shopping?

Just what is it with the Thais?


What’s it all about?


Author and academic Tom Tuohy answers all these questions and much more in his new book about the Thais and all their quirks. The book is available in print soon. I was given the opportunity to review the book before release and I’m glad that I had a chance to take a look at it. I was surprised at how accurate and informative this book was for an old hand like myself. I recommend this book to anyone wishing to understand Thailand and her peoples in more depth than the surface understanding of her culture that many of us seem to get by with. A great read - informative and entertaining." (James Newman - Author of Bangkok Express and Bangkok City.)
