King’s word of approval published
Published on August 30, 2005 - The writer of “Royal Power” has added a new chapter to the book’s second edition that is reserved for His Majesty the King’s compliments about his work. Pramual Rujanaseri writes that he was delighted to hear His Majesty approved of the book. He wrote that Piya Malakul na Ayutthaya, an editor at Advance Publishing Company, had relayed the royal compliment to him on August 8.
“I’ve read your book. I’m impres-sed with it. It’s a good book with precise information,” Pramual quotes His Majesty as saying in the book. “Could you tell him [the writer] I like the book very much,” His Majesty - with his hand on his heart - reportedly asked Piya to relay to Pramual.
Pramual notes in the chapter that the nation is in trouble due to a plethora of problems, including continuing violence in the southernmost provinces, the oil-price crisis, rising household debt, drugs, social malaise, crime, corruption and a weak state sector. The problems are so great that the people cannot see their future, he writes.
Amid the darkness, the country can only hope for the royal power of His Majesty to bring about relief.
