Abstract

book reviews stance, he includes information on sites that are curiosities of nature, such as Ko Tapu in Pangnga, southern Thailand, or famous, such as the rock filmed in the James Bond movie. Personally, I feel this tends to discount the value of the book. Although the author intended to provide more information on the sites to meet the needs of the tourist, some information seems to be quite irrelevant while more impor- tant data are missing. For example, on page 235 in ``Other Caves,'' information on the important features found in the caves and how to get there are omitted. I strongly feel that this part of the book is unnecessary. Overall, there are several good sections and it contains a wealth of information. The photographs are well printed on good quality paper. It is a worthy addition to any collection about Thailand.
