    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.

    Posted from within Vietnam.

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