The Die-Hard Media Against Thaksin Regime
By Termsak Jarupran, Anchaleeporn Kusum, Yuthiyong Limlerdwathee.
Preface by Sondhi Limthongkul. Price 160 baht
Sondhi Limthongkul: "I hope this book would be read by students who are interested in Television news reporting, journalism and communication arts students in order to learn the prior generation template's legacy."
Yuthiyong Limlerdwathee: "Good or bad...people know it. Genuine or fake...people see it. Media duly works or play jokes... People realize it. This book is another one to tell the audiences about our background lives at ASTV."
Termsak Jarupran: "Our career has a very high cost, i.e., trust. This is the cost which the audiences give to us and we use the trust as assets and process this trust as commodities. If we process it with honesty, it is alright. However, for me, if the process is stealthy or deceiving, it is not fair for the trust given to us by the people."
Anchaleeporn Kusum: "If ethics means remaining ambivalence, staying nondecisive, unopposed to what we have judged as a wrongdoing by our wisdom and available information, together with our conscience, then we may not have ethics."
ASTV, the Rebellious Television Medium of Thailand
The medium who does not ignorantly turn a blind eye on the degeneration of the society.
Preface by Sondhi Limthongkul. Price 180 baht
Sondhi Limthongkul: "I do not fight for myself. I fight for you all. I fight for one day in the future, you will have the rights to freely report. I fight for the new generation to have room to stand in the society and to have a good norm...."
Boonrak Boonyaketmala, lacturer at the Faculty of Journalism and Mass Media, Thammasat University: "The expression and activities of the media in the Manager group and ASTV...is equivalent to the change of the media in USA during 1990's after the cold war. They did not ignorantly turn a blind eye on the degeneration of the society but stepped forward to search for new roles."
The Sondhi Phenomenon, From Yellow Shirt to Light Blue Scarf with a VCD
365 Days of Overthrowing Thaksin Regime
by Kamnoon Sithisaman
Preface by Sondhi Limthongkul. Price 320 baht
VCD, The Sondhi Phenomenon, From Yellow Shirt to Light Blue Scarf: Relive of Thailand Weekly (Muang Thai Rai Sab Da)
Sondhi Limthongkul: "This book, I can say, is the most complete in terms of the background decisions in every step, including the philosophy of incidences and the philosophy of the struggles in all situations where Kamnoon Sithisaman was a player as well as an eyewitness."
Kamnoon Sithisaman: "I try to explain what is the the heart of the Travelling Thailand Weekly (Muang Thai Rai Sab Da San Jon). I try to explain what is the the heart of Sondhi Limthongkul. I try to narrate to show that this heart was born from the (people's) rise-up to defend the Royal authority of a just King who has righteously reigned the country for 60 years during which he has advised a sustainable development, self-dependent, and actual hapiness policies which have never received real understanding and attention from any governments. This heart which integrates the defence of the monarchy, the reform of politics and the reform of country development, brings about powerful movements. There are so many people talking about "the country, the religions, and the King" but Sondhi Limthongkul talks with a different kind of sedmentous heart."
In contrast to the coup d etat which is a change of the administration by force and risks violence, another less violent change is the so-called "People's Uprising". The coup on September 19, 2006, was a result of a necessity for a political change with the least or no casualty. If there had been no such coup, there would have been, sooner or later, a "People's Uprising".

The Final Battle, Reclaim Our Thailand
Narrated by Manager's Editorial Department.
Preface by Suwicha Pienras. Price 190 baht
Suwicha Pienras. "Undoubtedly, Thai political history has to record that the return of the rally of People's Alliance for Democracy in 2008 is one of the lengthiest mass movements of the people. The words 'The Sacred Mission' and 'The Final Battle' look like good definitions indicating the melting pot of the people's democratic uprising, both in Bangkok and the national domestic networks as well as Thai expatriates.
The words 'The Sacred Mission' and 'The Final Battle' which are not meant to limit only to the abolishment of the evil capitalism regime and to expel the troublesome puppet governments, but also to change the society to a better one.
The photos and the stories of this movement, since the major conference hall at Thammasat University to the mass rally on May 25, 2008 at the Democracy Monument, telling all the numerous obstacles, describing the camping out rally at Makawan Rangsan bridge, Rajdamnoen Nok Avenue, the satellite rallies and the victorious march by hundreds of thousands of people to the Government House, are all valuable and meaningful. Just to memorize these, however, is not enough."
