Do you know a nice book about teaching, or learn how to teach, available in Bangkok, please reply.

A far better book than "Learning Teaching" is "Training for Dummies" by Elaine Biech. The ideas and methodoligies presented in this book are by and large transferrable to English language teaching.
It is available at Kinokuniya Siam Paragon store.
I second Learning Teaching by Jim Scrivener for his entertaining style of writing. Penny Ur's A Course in Language Teaching: Practice and theory may be of interest, too. However, from personal experience buying a few beers for an experienced colleague can be the most educational, and enjoyable, path to teaching enlightenment.
Think Different. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, Are the ones who do.
I wouldn't reccomend getting learning teaching, the book is full of huge blocks of text that say nothing, it has so much useless information in it that i've very rarely used it.
Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.
Go to the teachers bookshops in Bangkok, DK and Langauge Media Book Center in Siam Sq. and you'll find a bookshelf full of options.

Along with Learning Teaching by Jim Scrivener they seem to be the standard texts on CELTA courses. I haven't read them yet but I've just looked through both and they seem to be good for learning classroom techniques and lesson planning skills.
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.
