    $3.99$12.99

    Once a kingdom in its own right, Zanskar is now a unique part of Southern Ladakh, and comprises less than 16,000 inhabitants.
    Cut off entirely from the rest of the world for at least 7 months every year by heavy snow, with no road access or airport, the people are still resilient, hospitable and hard working. Their adversity gives rise to one of the most exciting treks in the world, known as the Chadar Ice Trek in January and February each year, going from Padum in the South, up the frozen Zanskar River, to Nimmo near Leh, a distance of some 105 Km.

    Chris Hertzog, a well known researcher in Anti-aging Medicine (AAM), has visited the area many times, and wanted in this brief book, to dedicate it to a very special community with their unique way of life, in an area known as ‘The Top of The World’.

    A True Story from South East Asia

    A True Story from Asia

    250 Thai Girls by Age 25, A True Story from South East Asia is a true-to-life adventure that can be relived from beginning to end. The story begins with the allure of travel and the need for new experiences. Sex, drugs, alcohol and debauchery are the name of the game, and the impetus behind this historic modern day journey. Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Udon Thani, Cambodia, Laos, and the pristine Andaman beaches of Kho Lipe are featured in this bold and daring travel adventure.

    The author narrowly escapes death at the hands of a knife wielding Cambodian mugger. He is violently robbed by a taxi driver in Bangkok. Held up by the Laos Police for running at a late night roadblock with a teen prostitute. And narrowly escapes a King Cobra in the jungles of Northern Thailand.

    This non-fiction story is as up to date, authentic, and original as anything in its genre. The names, places, and people from this wild South East Asian sexcapade have not been altered in any way. This book has the potential to spark a new generation of hedonistic travelers looking to better understand themselves, and where to go to make that possible. Once you go Asian, you will never go Caucasian.

    Join the author on his solo travels while he searches out every nook and cranny during his first year in South East Asia.

  • The Retire in Thailand Handbook

    The first six months

    My first six months in Thailand was very frustrating. When I dreamed about retiring in Thailand I thought that when I arrived I would get my retirement visa, rent a condo, buy a vehicle, then spend my time exploring my new country, going to the beach, going out for meals and meeting new friends.
    Unfortunately reality took over and I spent most of my time dealing with Thai bureaucracy, and trying to sort out the endless problems that arise when moving to a new country. Back in Australia I already had an Australian visa, my own house, my own car, medical insurance, driving license, bank accounts, credit rating, doctor and dentist. Moving to another country I was more or less starting my life over and I needed to establish myself within the Thai system. Government, banking, medical, everything that was just part of my everyday life back in Australia, I had to re create in Thailand.
    Hopefully this book will give you the information you need to avoid most of the problems that I had, and allow you to retire to this wonderful country with confidence and assurance as well as saving you time, money and your sanity.
    I wish I had been able to read this book before I left Australia.

    A New Life in the Philippines

    When Terence first arrived in Asia in 2010, he told the many girls he met two things: that he had no plans to get married and that he did not intend to have any children.
    He was in Asia merely to let his hair down.
    Five years later he was happily married to a dazzling Filipina and father to an equally dazzling baby boy.
    A Child @ 70 describes Terence’s radical transition from exhausted Western divorcee to enjoying life in a chaotic, emerging nation.
    It also provides a wealth of detail about the country, following his visits to many of the Philippines’s best islands, including the 10 biggest islands, and to its most important cities.

    Seducing Goddess Durga During The Clinton Era

    Our perception of recent history has been warped by three big events: the over-hyped millennial change (20th to 21st century) that got intertwined with the Dotcom Bubble; the traumatic “9-11” outrage with its catastrophically aggressive responses; and the creepy arrival of our “always on” connectivity to the “hive mind” … in the form of Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Added to which (gasp!) there’s the 2008-09 collapse of our financial system!

    With those 18 roller-coaster years tormenting our minds we’ve allowed (through neglect) the 1990s to slip into obscurity. Might “Monica Lewinsky” be the first thing you recall about the 1990s? Turns out those Clinton years are pockmarked by far more political and economic corruption than the sex, race, and LSD obsessed 1960s!

    From 1991 forwards a slew of reckless geopolitical manoeuvres were initiated, which taken together completely upended a western world that had just enjoyed 45 stable years. The catalyst, but not the cause, was the official (December 26, 1991) dissolution of the Soviet Union. An event long anticipated by a psychotic Elite who had grabbed ownership of the West while JFK’s corpse was still warm.

    The military “New World Order” was begun by Operation Desert Storm. But the economic “New World Order” did not emerge until after 1st January 1995: the day the World Trade Organization was declared ‘international law’. For your benefit, those two major developments have been intelligently integrated into this book’s main narrative: the Author’s sudden confrontation with a radically transformed employment landscape.

    One of the great appeals of this 210 page book — perfect for a weekend read, or long-haul flight — is the accessible way in which real geopolitics have been interwoven with the Author’s own 1996 predicaments, as viewed from Abu Dhabi and Kuala Lumpur.

    The reader also gains unique anthropological insights as the Author recounts (in explicit detail) his lustful encounter with two Muslim females. Believe it or not, the 1990s offered a uniquely relaxed sexual atmosphere in several of the more progressive Islamic nations. Increasing numbers of Muslim women were quietly seeking out sexual thrills (e.g., oral sex without vaginal penetration), Western boyfriends, and even Western husbands. Yet by year 2000 this trend was being vehemently opposed by Saudi-sponsored Islamic radicalism.

    Read this book to celebrate not only what was, but also what might have been. Precious few new titles manage to both educate and entertain like this one does. Whether male or female, you will be thrilled by Outsourced World [Book-1]

  • Thailand Changes

    $4.99$13.99 Jaggs, Peter

    $4.99$13.99

    This book takes an offbeat and humorous look at how tourism has changed radically in Thailand over the past thirty-five years, seen through the eyes of two red-blooded young men who made their first trips to the country over three decades apart.
    Peter Jaggs provides an unparalleled insight into the night-streets, tourist resorts and rural villages of both modern day and bygone Thailand and goes some way to explaining why many men become so hooked on the country after just one short visit, it changes their lives forever.
    Thailand Changes is at the same time both hilarious and sobering. The writing is blunt and honest and about as politically correct as a sexist Klansman on a baby seal hunt wearing an ocelot fur coat, so reader discretion is advised.

    Visiting Thailand can be both exhilarating and enjoyable, sometimes frustrating but always enlightening.

    $4.99$14.99

    Chiang Mai is the most fascinating place on earth…and so is the food.
    Have you eaten a termite or met a Blacking Man? Have you seen the tree top spear fisherman, or tried to chew your way through a deep fried chicken head or a plateful of live shrimps? Have you ever wondered why there is a huge, stagnant, six mile and otherwise pointless canal running around the outer reaches of the south side of the city?
    This is a book about food, Chiang Mai, termites, sausages, ghosts, history, cooking, Islam, markets, death, noodles, forest fires, mushrooms and fish farming. (I think I’ve covered all bases).

    “Definitely on par with Bill Bryson but with more of a personal touch.” Alan, goodreads.com
    “Easily accessible, humorous and often embarrassingly honest.” Chiang Mai City Life
    “Love his books. Very funny, inspiring and interesting. Highly recommend to anyone.” Valerie, amazon.co.uk
    “Laugh out loud funny.” Sam, goodreads.com

  • 1970’s Billericay Boy

    $4.99$13.99 Jaggs, Peter
    Select options
    $4.99$13.99

    1970’s Billericay Boy is the story of a boy growing to early manhood in the Seventies and transports the reader slap-bang into the middle of a world of ‘bunking’ off school, getting the ‘whack’, smoking Players’ cigarettes at the top of the school field and ‘getting off’ with ‘birds’ at the back of the Archer Hall disco.

    The book is as hilarious, moody and sad as the lives of many teenagers of the time were and those who grew up in the era of Raleigh Choppers, Yamaha Fizzies, flared trousers, DM boots and Saturday afternoon football hooliganism will identify with it well. Dripping with nostalgia and peppered with a host of unforgettable characters, the author remembers his first clumsy encounters with girls, the first vehicles he ever owned and the first time he ever got drunk, as well as reliving the pressures and uncertainties of growing up and starting work during one of Britain’s worst economic recessions – all set against a soundtrack of David Bowie, Abba and Johhny Rotten’s Sex Pistols.

    Peter Jaggs has written many books about Thailand, most of which have reached bestselling status in their own categories. 1970’s Billericay Boy is different in that it revisits the decade he is convinced led him to run like hell to Asia in the first place. Shocking, sobering and side-splittingly funny, his latest book must surely be seen as an important piece of social history in its own right.

    After moving from the safety of middle class rural life in England, Alex and his family come to terms with living in Chiang Mai. It’s a little bit different. Well, to be honest with you, it’s about as different as having a nice quiet country walk and then deciding to see what it’s like to go ten rounds in the Saturday Night No Holds Barred Cage Fight Slaughterhouse Rumble hosted by the Creative Breaking legend Iron Knuckles Kane. It is excruciatingly different, and anybody who tells you otherwise is simply lying or well adjusted.

    Alex bumbles through another year treading prawns into the British Ambassadors carpet, unwittingly befriending The Triads, getting mixed up with the shadowy underworld of Chiang Mai’s Water Bandits and ending up in Chiang Mai’s police station.

    Vietnam’s Playground

    Olongapo was an extraordinary part of our world known to millions. This tiny section of the Far East served as playground for Vietnam. An amusement park for the American Seventh Fleet, contractors and other service members from around the world. Rides in this park featured people’s lives, creating impassioned experiences. Written with deepest respect for those with their names etched into The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. Many who experienced joy for the last time while in Olongapo. The Olongapo experience was a true phenomenon, a saturation of life.

    During the peak of Vietnam, the area grew from a population of 40,000 in 1964 to a bulging 138,000 plus by 1969. The undisputed king of liberty ports in Asia, Olongapo’s nightclubs bloomed from 35 to over 300. Pay by play girls increased to over 8,000 while pay by the hour hotels zoomed to more than 200. All of this amazing expansion crammed into just over one acre of frenzy. Men who had been off the coast of Vietnam and people shore based made up the 9 to 14 thousand visitors to the city every night of the year. Most were on brief liberty passes after months at sea and others awaited transfer to Vietnam. The combination created a free spending environment that poured millions of dollars into Olongapo every month.

    My novel is not just for the millions who miss such a unique concentration of life, it is for those who never knew the Olongapo experience.

  • The Never Lonely Planet

    $4.99$14.99

    Martin Oliver grew up and served an apprenticeship in Coventry, renowned at that time for its car production companies, with the expectation of drifting onto the production line. His fear of spending his working life clocking in and out of a factory, however, led him to join the Merchant Navy and eventually emigrate to Brazil. And so begins an amazing exploration of his experiences, travelling across continents and cultures, breathing in the rich history and absorbing the ever-changing landscape, not without a few bar stops and beer on the way.

    From Brazil and Dubai to Cambodia and Thailand, Oliver delights in the golf, women and nightlife, shares his recollections of his time at sea and the oil exploration industry, explores untouched villages and is haunted by the remnants of atrocities committed the world over. And then there are the people; who would have thought you could find a Liverpool FC supporting tribesman in Eritrea?

    Whilst The Never Lonely Planet is both a travel book and an autobiography, its purpose is also to serve as an inspiration to the reader and to show them that the opportunity to travel is open to almost anyone if they would only take the initiative. The traveller should never be blinded by politics, religion or their ignorance of other cultures.
    On the contrary, a little time spent travelling will result in a new respect and understanding of the people with whom we share our planet.

    A glimpse into the cultural wonderland of Asia

    The stories in this book describe life in other worlds across the Asian continent where customs and cultures are far removed from our own. All describe places I visited and sights I witnessed such as the simple yet wonderful Lao courtship ritual, the cremations on the banks of the Ganges, and the Golden Triangle’s unique Opium Museum.

    Some tell of the journeys themselves like my first taste of India; others relate to difficulties in communication as I experienced in Kathmandu, or of differences in cuisine such as in Vietnam. In others the theme is history; for example, Korea’s heartrending past.

    The tales journey from a holy lake in the Indian desert to the Killing Fields of Cambodia; from the land mines and bomb craters of the Lao countryside to the Korean DMZ; and from the magnificence of the Great Wall of China to the bustling twenty first century cities of Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong, all of which clearly demonstrate the wonder of our planet.
