Not very pedagogical,
This review is from: Thai for Intermediate Learners. Book (Paperback)
Typical Thai in its listmania, and unpedagogical approach. For anyone serious about learning Thai I'd recommend to go with a course from Linguaphone and then use this and other Paiboon publications as a supplement for extra vocabulary and example sentences.
Plus side is that it is cheap and has a consistent transcription system.
It has 10 chapters, each with a list of about 60 new words, 10-30 short example sentences and 3-4 short conversations. In addition there are long lists of names, pronouns, places, ministries, &c. Some longer texts would have helped a lot in giving more feel for the flow of language.
