Triple booked

Just to prove I’m a proper writer, like, and don’t just waffle about Jade Goody all day, three books in which I've had a hand have just appeared or are just about to. Radiohead and Philosophy: Fitter Happier More Deductive includes my chapter ‘Hyperreally Saying Something: Radiohead, Baudrillard and the Importance of Being Authentic’, alongside the thoughts of far more erudite chin-strokers. It’s published by Open Court on April 1st, and is available from Amazon in the US, or direct from the publishers. UK publication is scheduled for August, so you can pack a copy when you go grouse shooting.

Then there’s the 2009 edition of Thailand Tatler’s Best Restaurants Guide, including my thoughts on conceptual tuna sandwiches and much else. It’s available from a good bookshop near you, provided that good bookshop is in Thailand. But if you’re not in Thailand, you probably won’t need to read it anyway. It’s jolly good though, and I’ve got the cholesterol to prove it.

And if those two aren’t exciting enough, there’s always Vital HR Insights: Best Practices and Case Studies in Asia, published by CCH in Singapore. I’m especially proud of the robot sex scene on page 307.

Does your book food cover Pattaya? Stuck here for the weekend at a conference...

It does: although I'm not sure if the new edition has made it that far; and to be honest, there's not a lot going on in Pattaya, food-wise.

I had a conceptual tuna sandwich for lunch today - I preferred it to a networking tuna lunch.

Line-caught's better than net, Billy.

Tim: thanks, pay that re:food. How many tom yum goong sunsets can one stomach?

E@L goes for the golf mainly. He's on a strict diet.

Good to see you spreading the word on HR even if I did have to look it up.
