Book Review: VERY THAI: EVERYDAY THAI POPULAR CULTURE by Philip Cornwel-Smith Photographs by John Goss

Hardbound and tastefully organized with lotsa cool photos, this book's got all the vital data on street-level Thailand. All questions regarding bagged coffee, Red Bull-swilling motorcycle taxi drivers, and other curious aspects of the Bangkok streetscape are answered within its pages. A must read for anyone who's ever visited Thailand and thought twice about urban elephants and phallic key chains.

Basically, these dudes stole my thunder. This is freestyle anthro-journalism at its flaneuring best.
