    Book Wanted - "Essential Thai"

    I am after an original copy of "Essential Thai" by James Higbie complete with the original tape/s.

    It was first published by Bangkok Post in 1997 but is now out of print

    Willing to pay new price for book in good condition.

    Please contact me on agsut@optusnet.com.au

    I've my own battered and bent copy and even now it's useful.

    Might be worth trying Scribd to see if there is a downloaded copy of the book there.

    I don't have the time nor the inclination to upload my copy to Scribd, sorry.

    Yoda.

    Just searched Scribd under Languages .There are 792 entries and it is possible the book ''Essential Thai'' is there but I am not going through the whole list .

    Have a browse and you may find what you want.

    Good luck.

    Jim is in the process of reprinting Essential Thai. I cannot post links, so google 'James Higbie’s Essential Thai is Back!'

    (perhaps someone can add the url here)

    James Higbie's Essential Thai is Back! | Women Learning Thai... and some men too ;-)

    Essential Thai will be available late in 2010 or early in 2011.
    Chris Frape, Publisher of Orchid Press, has announced that the Bangkok-based company will reissue Essential Thai, a popular beginning level Thai language book that has been out of print since the demise of the book division of Post Publishing almost ten years ago.
    The book will be reissued in its original A4 format and will include standard sized CDs for pronunciation.
    I had a copy and it is a good learning book. It was much photocopied and when I left Thailand I gave it to one of the Thai teachers at my school.
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.
