By now, it should be clear that Blundering Around Isaan is the title of a book written by Peter Jaggs. That last reference just above ─ Bao-Bao’s Blog ─ has an excellent review of the book.
I did a search to locate some biographical information on Peter Jaggs, and found that I am going to have to settle with the following ─ it seems to be the commonest synopsis that’s available online. But on the chance that you may not have seen it, I will reproduce it here:
Peter Jaggs is from Essex in England and has spent the best part of the past twenty five years in Thailand since he was in his early twenties and has visited every province in the country.
Peter has always believed that real work is a necessary evil and should only be undertaken when funds are required for the extended bouts of bar-hopping, fishing and hanging out on beaches he much prefers.
However, he does enjoy writing about his beloved second home and has had articles, stories and poems published in several newspapers and magazines.
Although Peter loves women – especially of the Thai variety – he is not married because he feels that a wife would be as much of a hindrance to his freedom and irresponsible lifestyle as a regular job. Besides this, no female on God’s earth could put up with him for any length of time apart from his mother.
Peter is currently based between Devon, England and Pattaya City and spends an equal amount of time in each of his two homes with frequent excursions to other favourite venues in Asia.
Peter also wrote the first ever book in the English language published on freshwater fishing in Thailand.
Amazon has a slightly alternate biography ─ the only other that I have been able to uncover with my admittedly fairly brief search:
Peter Jaggs has spent the best part of the last thirty years in Thailand. He is the author of sixteen books about the country which are available in paperback and e-book format. Peter started writing for fun and nobody was more surprised than himself to find his books reaching best-seller status on many distribution sites which specialize in material about Thailand. As well as his books, he has written many articles, short stories and series for English language newspapers in Thailand, including the Pattaya Mail and Pattaya People Weekly. He has also made several appearances at ex-pat clubs and on television in Thailand. Peter Jaggs has been described as something as a ‘pioneer author’ in Thailand, having written the first ever books published in the English language on the subjects of freshwater fishing and metal detecting. His other books include a novel, true travel adventures and ‘From Beggar to Butterfly‘, a book of short stories, which was described in a review by the Bangkok Post as one of the best books written on Pattaya.
The U.S. Amazon‘s offer of the book is just beneath this post, but on the chance that you might be interested in checking out Peter Jagg’s full list of books, you can browse them at two of the Amazon locations here ─ I think that clicking on the book will actually take you to the full list:
