Post Books

Book Publishing

The company’s printing business has published more than 500 titles since its inception in 2008. These include both works of fiction and non-fiction. The diverse topics range from business, investment and personal development to history, entertainment and literature. Post Books carries products in both Thai and English.

In 2019, Post Books sought to help local readers stay ahead of the digital game by launching the Thai translation of Digital Darwinism: Survival of the Fittest in the Age of Business Disruption by Tom Goodwin.

The author is a columnist for TechCrunch, Forbes, The Guardian, GQ, Ad Age, Wired, Ad Week, Inc, MediaPost and Digiday. He is also the Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer of Zenith Media, USA. Mr Goodwin was voted one of the Top 10 Marketing People by LinkedIn and is one of the 30 “must follow” personalities on Twitter by Business Insider and Fast Company. The title has been well received by readers.

Another popular release was Why Save the Bankers? by Thomas Piketty, author of top-selling book Capital in the Twenty-First Century.

In addition, Post Books reinforced its successful niches of Asian and Western wisdom mining philosophy and history as applied to modern management and contemporary lifestyles. One of 2019’s highlights was Ten Lectures on the Art of War by Huasan. The book’s author spent more than 20 years studying Sun Tzu and conducting a detailed analysis of The Art of War. Others included Look at the Chopsticks, See the Bamboo Forest Volume 4 written by Chinese history buff Nithipan Wisprawit, and Hua Fung Liao Yuan Wai Zhuan, a best-selling novel series set in China.

Post Books is currently stepping up its online platform to reach young readers and make the reading experience even more convenient.
