Praise

[Moore's] experience and in-depth knowledge of the country really shines through, providing intriguing insights into a vast range of subjects – culture, politics, psychology, crime, history – to name just a few. Moore’s writing style is easily read and hugely entertaining, whilst still being incredibly informative.
Bangkok Best

It is perhaps a judge of excellence that I would pull down one book from the shelves, read it again, and thoroughly enjoy it once more? If so, then The Cultural Detective by Christopher G. Moore (ISBN 978-616-90393-8-9, Heaven Lake Press, 2011) is an excellent book. Not only a good book, but for me, the best book reviewed in 2011.
