Book review

Written with insight and humour the Author pulls no punches and presents Thailand exactly as seen through his eyes after experiencing life in the North, South and North-East since 2008. Although this is not a travel book in the accepted sense it can easily be categorised as such. It is more a critical memoir of the author’s observations of the peoples and culture of Thailand; a Country, monopolised by superstition, ancient cultural values and old religious beliefs, struggling to come to terms with modernity and the 21st century; people who have, as yet, travelled little. The author presents his views objectively although, in setting out the ‘pros and cons’ of life in and the mysteries of Thailand, some of his arguments may be viewed as polemic which he says ‘was absolutely intentional’. He believes there should be, and usually is, a balance to be found in every society and that most cultures and religions may have syncretic elements to their beliefs, to a greater or lesser degree. We are all ostensibly the same if we look behind the mask.
