    It look as though the publisher is based in Berkeley, CA, with an office in Bangkok.

    The book is printed here in Thailand and then shipped to America by sea mail. The book has only just been published and I am not sure if they would have received their copies yet. We usually sell cheaper than them if you want to wait a few days. Their shipping fees are quite expensive.

    .
    Sounds like a fine idea, a book focused on retiring in Thailand.
    The title alone is sure to generate a lot of sales.
    Alas, while the title is tempting, the actual book is disappointing -- judging from the web preview.

    I am retired and have been living here in Thailand for over two years.
    I've bought a lot of books about Thai culture and Thai language, and I'll certainly buy many more.
    But after a look at the sample pages on the web, I won't be buying this book.
    It is mundane, boringly mundane.
    Had I purchased this book before I arrived here, and without reading the sample pages, I would have wanted to return the book and get a refund.

    But don't take my word for it.
    Before you spend your money, judge for yourself.
    You can read sample pages here: http://www.retiringinthailand.com/vi...ew_book_2.html

    That said, there are many other, highly useful books for anyone thinking about retiring in Thailand.
    Here are some I have purchased and found highly useful:
    • Benjawan's Thai-English English-Thai (Critical for surviving in Thailand. I use this dictionary every day.)
    • Thailand Fever (Essential reading for every man coming to Thailand, retired or not.)
    • DOs & DON'Ts in Thailand (All those cultural gaffs that foreigners make, along with how to avoid making them.)
    • Thai for Beginners & Thai for Beginners Software
    • Living Thai Ways
    • Thai Hawker Food
    I see that all of these excellent books are available on the website www.buythaibooks.com .
    Sadly, Bryce & Terleck's Retiring in Thailand doesn't make it into the excellent category.
    I hope Richard isn't buying a large quantity for inventory.
    And I look forward to reading other opinions about this book from retirees with substantial experience in Thailand.

    The web previews are bland. But I'm not sure that tells the tale of the entire book. The books that you've listed as being quite good...Did you determine they were good reading by there web site review's?

    Re: NEW BOOK: Retiring in Thailand

    Damn, I guess that I ain't happy, maybe I should read a book so I know what to do, I been here only 6 years,First came here in the mid 60s, I got friends that have been here since they was in Nam, married and loving it, coarse they have had to go away for a few months at a time to work,
    Some only have 15 years and they never read a book about it either, maybe they ain't doing it right either.

    Living life sure ain't like operating a complicated piece of new machinery that has to be done with an operators manual in one hand.

    Yes, it does sound that way, don't it.

    To bad they didn't have books like that when we started to move around the world ain't it,, Maybe we would have returned home 40 years ago and never left again.555
