Unlike his first book, “Tay Khong Gay Dung Co Do” (Building A Career by Bare Hands), which was earlier released in Vietnam and told of Vikrom’s desire to be a rich man, “Be A Better Man” is the story of the billionaire’s normal life with many ups and downs.
“People can make mistakes, but the point is they must live today better than yesterday,” he shared. “Think about good things and then do good things.”
As many as 300,000 copies have been sold in Thailand since the book debuted in 2004. A Thai TV series adapted from the book is also being purchased to be broadcast in Vietnam.
In 2008, Vikrom was voted as one of Thailand’s 40 richest people by Forbes magazine.
He has published 12 books in Thailand, and they are sold for just US$1 in the hope of sharing his experiences with younger generations.
