Tried and True Recipes from David Thompson's "Thai Food"

Just like Vorpal's reply in this thread, yeah, Thompson's book has tremendous breadth, but it's not for newbies. Plus which, hunting down some of the ingredients can be tricky.
I took a Thai cooking course from Kasma Loha-Uncht, which was great, and I have two of her cookbooks. "It Rains Fishes" is one of my "go to" cookbooks for Thai. She is much more accessible while not sacrificing any of the authenticity.
Thompson has a new book coming out in the U.S. this September called "Thai Street Food." Seems interesting, but I'm wary as to whether I'll have to hunt down fresh mangosteens.
