  1. "“I just wrote the book based on the interview, from his own words, without deciding on what was factual or non-factual.”"

    Wasn't see just following the tried tradition of print media journalism in Thailand? She would probably fit in with most newspapers.

  2. On the face of it what she has done shows ambition and drive although I am sure she would admit to being a little naive. Unless she had something specific in her contract of employment (if she even had one) saying she couldn't do something like this then I can't see the problem. If she did this in her own time and at her own expense then that's something to be applauded.
    Based purely on her desire to get a story I would not have any problems employing her as a writer. I can't comment on the story itself as I haven't read it. I wonder if anyone is considering negotiating the English language rights to the book?

  3. I wouldn't bother reading it. The US is rife with this kind of pop culture treatment of serious topics. Fluff pieces about politicians. It simply doesn't interest me a bit.

    Now if someone would write a serious book, I'd be happy to read it!

    Does anyone know if there is a good book on Thaksin in English?

    Peace,
