Review:

'...warrants high praise.' -- Paul Dorsey, Sunday X-Press, 15 June 2008

'Like all good doctors and authors, Dr Iain Corness provides comfort for the aches and pains of ex-pat life.' -- Christopher G. Moore, author of the critically acclaimed and best-selling Land of Sunshine trilogy

'Not only does Dr Iain see the things that make up Thailand, but he experiences them, bringing up unseen aspects in a very humorous way.'
-- Lang Reid, Chiangmai Mail

`Ripper yarns with an Asian twist--focused wit and original
wisdom from the Doc who has done most things, all
successfully.' -- John Weinthal, Writer and Broadcaster, Kuala Lumpur

From the Back Cover:

Dr Ian Corness fell in love with Thailand on a holiday in 1975, and finally managed to move there permanently in 1997. As a settled farang, or foreigner, he enjoys a unique perspective on Thai life and all its eccentricities; looking in from the outside while also getting to see the things most foreigners don't.
Like all good doctors and authors, Corness provides comfort for the aches and pains of ex-pat life. His stories and anecdotes are full of the joys of life, and celebrate this exotic and exciting land in all its glory, with painfully funny observations.
From a date with a fortune teller to tales of a reincarnated squid, Corness revels in the chaos and charm of `the only country where you can be run over by a shop.'
This is a book to be enjoyed by tourists and Thais alike.
