My copy is battered from so much use. I love this book! It is loaded with vocabulary always in context of the people and Thai culture. I don't know of another book so rich in both language learning and cultural insight. I use this reference all the time and can still find something new. I think it is best suited to the person who already knows basic greetings, questions and phrases - perhaps a 200 to 300 word vocabulary from elsewhere. Then this will become a treasure to inform your Thai experiences! I fell in love with this country, its people, and the life style several years ago on Day 1 incountry. This enthusiasm continues and this book continues to be useful for both learning and review. Buy this book second, after a more typically structured and sequential one, but buy this too.

As a "farang" married to a Thai I've been through a lot of Thai phrasebooks and this is the book I recommend to anyone who not only wants to be able to communicate in Thai but also to understand something of the culture and customs.
This is the most modern and comprehensive phrase book I've seen anywhere and the transliteration system will get you closer to native pronunciation than any other.
The book is divided into various subject areas, e.g., "Eating and Drinking," "Being Polite," "Getting Around," etcetera, and is written in a fun, breezy, narrative style.
If you are planning a trip to Thailand, this is the book you must have.

I found this a really helpfull book. A bit old but there were lots of, 'in between' words that i hadnt found in any other phrase book which enabled me to construct sentences a lot easier, also lots of new words and phrases that i found usefull in day to day vocabulary. Definately worth having.

This book is larger than the average phrasebook, but then it is probably not like any language book you have ever seen. I truly believe that to understand a language you have to first understand the culture of the country. This is exactly what this handbook does. I bought this book when I first came to Thailand and found it invaluable for not only learning the language but it also helped me understand the culture and customs. I was sad when I lost my copy but was so please to rediscover this book when it was reprinted in 2003.
A great book for people who want to learn something about the country before they visit as well as to learn many useful phrases.
