    I recently read a very insightful book about Cambodia called, “From the Booth to the Bedroom” by Douglas DeMarco.

    It's a true story of an American finding fame in Cambodia. It's a first-hand account of how he became an overnight TV and Radio celebrity in Phnom Penh. It talks about his journey to find himself both physically and mentally.

    His insights about the culture, government and the people, but especially the women of this Southeast Asian country. are at times shocking but, for anyone who has spent time in Asia, can be seen as an honest, heartfelt opinion. The strange juxtaposition of the story of his survival and rehabilitation in a place where the ghosts of so many still cry out for life and retribution is well worth reading about.

    I actually read it twice and found it a very moving but at the same time humorus look at various aspects of life in Asia.
