New book just published 'Vietnam: rising dragon'
8th May, 2010
Excuse the plug but Travelfish readers headed to Vietnam might be interested in my new book about the country.
It's called 'Vietnam: rising dragon' and it's the result of the year I spent reporting the country for the BBC plus a couple of years of further research.
It tries to answer most of the questions I had about the country - what's driving the changes in daily life? who runs Vietnam and how? how is the environment coping with economic development etc etc.
You can find it in English-language bookshops in SE Asia and in the usual places like Amazon and Borders plus good smaller shops.
I've got a Facebook page for the book at:
It's had some good reviews so far (in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Irish Times etc) Hope you like it too.

I 've read it. I really appreciate your insights about Vietnam today. It's nice to have this book translated to Vietnamese.
