Hello,
I'm trying to find a book from James Higbie - Essential thai, but can't find it anywhere.
Is there somebody who knows where to get it ?

Thanks
Jef

There are currently 5 new and 3 used copies available at Amazon.com. It is a fantastic book which I recommend highly. I was referring to it today, as a matter of fact.

Glen,
you are reffering to the 'Thai Reference Grammar' book of James Higbie. (an excellent book that is allready on my bookshelf).
The Essential Thai book is older and for beginners with a cassete tape.

Best regards ... Jef

I've got this book - as well as James Higbie's Thai Reference Grammar.

I consider them both to my bibles to Thai Language. The Essential Thai is all you really need, however.

It is currently in many of the bookshops in Bangkok - Bookazine, Asia Books, etc.

Distributed in Thailand by DK Today.
Tel. +66(0)2245-5586

The publisher Bangkok Post has shut down their book publishing division, Post Books.

But you could try:
