The author says: ‘The purpose of this book is to provide some explanation for half of what the average, farang, Westerner, may find puzzling or obscure in Thai behavior.; 

And he also says: ‘The reader may begin to wonder, as I have wondered, how he can truly know himself if he has not tested his preconceptions in the water of another culture or world view ,to see at least if they harden or dissolve.’

Understanding Thai thinking from a Thai point of view will help you work, live in Thailand and make it, not only more enjoyable, but more efficient! 

Thai behavior may frustrate the Westerner but understanding Thais, means understanding a different look on life, work and values. Westerners have a habit of rarely accepting alternative ways of looking at the world, values and behavior. 

This book will challenge you!

Thais have different perspectives on life, leadership, power, status, management and delegation, cooperation, manners, individual freedom. This and much more is touched upon in this book.

What's right, what’s wrong? 

Learn why Thais who face problems and conflicts, smile. This book will lead you to many oops and ahas.

I think it is a must if you want to work and live or volunteer in Thailand (actually in Laos too). It will save you many frustrations by understanding what to expect and what not to.

A great read to understand Thai culture. Traditional Thai culture, unlike Western, thinks different about delegation and responsibility. Blame games, offending people will not help you. Redmond is not a blame gamer. What is right to some, is not to others.

Mont Redmond, helps you make more sense of Thai behavior and that will take you some way when you visit, live, work, volunteer and want  to enjoy Thailand and its smiling people. 

So, get it, read it!
