The Guardian has a Top 10 Books About Cambodia list, but it's from 2014.

You could make a new top 10 list for popular books about Cambodia 2017.

Would No Joke Howard's book make your list? :stir:
As it happens, No Joke Howard's book would actually TOP the list. His book was the Most Popular book for the past 18 months, though he has been knocked down to second place recently.

Also, I might add, that "Stop being a Bitch, Quit your lame ass job & Move to Cambodia by Braeton Howard" was the very first book that I sold (but I got no commission :( ).

I feel sorry for anyone who bought that pile of shit, then comes over here and realizes the doofus hadn't a fucking clue about anything.

Probably answered somewhere already, but does Amazon ship books up Cambodia?

Is the website yours Username Taken?
Yes it is.

Please note that currently I have no affiliation with any book vendors (i.e. Amazon), so currently I make nothing from book sales. In the future . . .
Update: I am now an Amazon Affiliate member. That means that if you follow a link from booksaboutcambodia.com to Amazon and buy a book, I might get a small commission.

I have had to add the following to the website, so I guess I should add it here too:
DISCLAIMER -
"BooksAboutCambodia.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites".
:thumb: :thumb: small as they are, those commissions add up...

more like 10 minutes...LOL

Anyone read this, Angkor and Cambodia in the Sixteenth Century: According to Portuguese and Spanish Sources by: Bernard-Philippe Groslier? Could been an interesting perspective. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/9745240532/

I haven't heard of that one, I have read "A Brief and Truthful Relation of Events in the Kingdom of Cambodia" by Gabriel Quiroga de San Antonio:

And "Murder and Mayhem in Seventeenth-Century Cambodia: Anthony van Diemen vs. King Ramadhipati I" :
