Thanks for telling us about the problem. Too many errors in Higbie.

I wish that book was available in an ebook format but it’s not.

The main reasons which I strongly recommend the Thai Reference Grammar are its thoroughness and wide-ranging topics covered, its focus on the modern, spoken language and its ease of use. The ‘Indirect’ download doesn’t seem so easy to navigate, although it seems to download fine except for the last directory page.
